Network port(s) running in low speed-paloaltonetworks-panos

Vendor: paloaltonetworks

OS: panos

Description:
Indeni will alert one or more network ports is running in a speed lower than 1000Mbps.

Remediation Steps:
Many times ports are in a low speed due to an autonegotation error or a misconfiguration.

How does this work?
This alert logs into the Palo Alto Networks firewall through api and retrieves the status of all network interfaces. In that output, it looks for the actual runtime speed of each interface.

Why is this important?
Generally, these days network interfaces are set at 1Gbps or more. Sometimes, due to a configuration or device issue, an interface can be set below that (to 100mbps or even 10mbps). As that is usually not the intended behavior, it is important to track the speed of all network interfaces.

Without Indeni how would you find this?
The status of network interfaces is visible through the web interface. If a configured interface is down, it will appear with a red indicator.
