PA-220 (A/P) Packet Buffer on DP filling up over time on passive Firewall

L1 Bithead

Hi There

We have two PA-220-ZTP Firewalls with PanOS: 10.2.3 and in Active-Passive configuration


On the passive firewall we see Packet Buffers on Data Plane filling up over time. The active firewall doesn't have this issue. I've just rebooted the passive firewall and the counter went back to zero. I can conform from the cli of the passive firewall that this value is represented correctly. Any ideas on why this occures and how to prevent this from happening again?


Kind Regards
