Is there any simple way to clear GlobalProtect authentication cookies on an endpoint other than uninstalling the client, rebooting and reinstalling? For troubleshooting some connection issues, I need to show what happens when the cookie doesn't exist. However, the cookies have a lifetime of 7 days so I have to uninstall/reinstall the application to get the behaviour that happens when no cookie is available.

Does anyone know for certain what the maximum throughput of a Palo firewall is if the only security profile applied is URL Filtering? The PA-5050 can do 10Gbps of App-ID firewall throughput and 5 Gbps of Threat Prevention throughput. If you pushed 6 Gbps of traffic through a PA-5050 with only URL filtering applied, would the PA-5050 throttle the traffic to 5 Gbps because of the limit to Threat Prevention throughput or would it let the traffic through at full speed given the 10 Gbps App-ID throughput? You need to decode the HTTP header to determine the URL correctly and this means Content Inspection (which implies the traffic is limited to Threat Prevention throughput). However, according to the link below, the URL match happens on the same processors that do the App-ID (Security processor) and not the same as IPS, spyware, etc (Signature matching processors) so possibly URL filtering can happen at App-ID throughput speeds. https://www.paloaltonetworks.com/products/secure-the-network/next-generation-firewall/pa-5000-series Thanks
