Concurrent connection limit nearing for Palo Alto Networks


Palo Alto Networks


Indeni will alert the number of connections for a device is too high.

Remediation Steps

Review why this may be happening and consider upgrading the device or redirecting traffic.
Compare the products and the maximum sessions allowed: Compare Firewalls

How does this work?

This alert uses the Palo Alto Networks API to retrieve the current utilization of the number of sessions allowed in total.

Why is this important?

Tracking the number of concurrent connections is helpful in understanding traffic patterns and load.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

To know what is the current utilization of sessions on a Palo Alto Networks firewall, the user will normally use the CLI. A script could be written to track this data on an ongoing basis.
