security profile malfunction detection

L0 Member

Does anyone have any good log events to key on for notifying when a security profile (antivirus, anti-spyware, vulnerability protection, url, file blocking, wildfire) may not be functioning properly?  I am thinking maybe trying to identify the log event for when dynamic updates have failed to install, and trying to alert when configuration changes to specific security profiles occur might be useful.


Any others? Does anyone know of any of log types/events which could imply that a security profile functionality may be impacted?

Hello @JasonRakersKSS


thanks for posting.


Given the criteria it is hard to advice a single solution to meet the requirement. To be honest, I would start with AIOps and BPA: Palo Alto Best Practice Assessment (BPA) for Security Profiles. The information in the link are addressing scenarios where security posture is not aligning with recommendations / best pracrtises.


Kind Regards
