Appliance health

I am not sure this is the right place...

In the past I had several cases where someone started some debugs and forgot to turn them off.

Stopping firewall acceleration is also very popular think to forget to turn back on.
This always causes high load or a full disk.

Can we build a script that is checking for running debugs and other stuff that is causing high load and is not needed for regular operations on gateway or management side?

Looking forward to read your opinions.

Re: Appliance health

There are a couple types of debugs in general:

  • Kernel debugs: Most of these can be disabled using the command fw ctl debug 0
  • User-space debugs: depends on the process, but a fairly comprehensive list is here: Check Point Processes and Daemons
