Palo Alto – Find Processes Hogging The CPU

Update 07/11/2016: Update for PAN OS v7.1.

To show the CPU usage of all processes on the Palo Alto use the following command.

user@hostname> show system resource follow

When run the output will be that of the Linux top command.

For example if the process “logrcvr” was taking up all the CPU time, you can restart the process with the command:

user@hostname> debug software restart log-receiver

For PAN OS v7.1 the syntax has altered slightly and is now.

user@hostname> debug software restart process log-receiver
