Hi @Kunal_Tomar ,


If you know the CLI commands to view the info, then you can view the information via the XML API.  You can navigate the XML API interface by browsing to /api after your NGFW IP or DNS name.


You mentioned REST API in your post.  There is a link to the REST API on the XML API page described above.  PANW uses REST (like many vendors) only for configuration changes.  So, technically, you would use the XML API to get your info.


Typically monitoring tools use SNMP to collect the info you described.  If you can't get it via API, then you could look into SNMP.
