Wrong SNMP Values after Upgrading to 6.0.2

L2 Linker


after Upgrading from 5.0.7 to 6.0.2 I got wrong values for active sessions information in my monitoring tool. The device it selfs shows a much lower value then my SNMP-network Monitoring tool.


on the device:



At the same time via SNMP



Is this How can I solve these problem?

Hello Robert,

Through CLI, by default  you will get the max session capacity of only DP-0 ( Data-plane-0).  If you change the target DP to DP-1 and  run the same command, it will give you:

admin@eapafw01> set system setting target-dp dp1

Session target dp changed to dp1

admin@eapafw01> show session info


Number of sessions supported:                    786418  >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Max capacity for DP-1

Number of active sessions:                       0

Number of active TCP sessions:                   0

Number of active UDP sessions:                   0

Number of active ICMP sessions:                  0

Number of active BCAST sessions:                 0

Number of active MCAST sessions:                 0

Number of active predict sessions:               0

Session table utilization:                       0%

Number of sessions created since bootup:         76

Packet rate:                                     0/s

Throughput:                                      0 kbps

New connection establish rate:                   0 cps


As we know, PA-5020 is having 2 data-plane ( DP-0 and DP-1), then the total session capacity of the box would be ( 1048574+786411= ~ 1834992).

Hope this helps.

Hello Hulk,

thanks for your help. It seems that this is the solution. I changed to dp1 and saw further 25000 active sessions.


If I summarize both active sessions, I have the same value like my SNMP-Monitor shows.

I'm wondering. Under 5.0.7 the snmp value was only shown for dp0 (respectivley the value looked so). Now I will investigate was dp0 and dp1 means and what the reale active session value is.
