Palo Alto site-to-site vpn monitoring

Hello all,

on A Palo Alto FW after executing "show vpn ike-sa gateway gateway_id" command I receive the output such as below
show vpn
Does the "Established" time suggest that the VPN was down and reestablished at 08:01:55 or does it only mean that rekeying of phase 1 happened at that time due to SA lifetime expiry?

Check the next day.

If at "Established" it said Mar.16 08:01:55 then it means you have a key life of 24 hours and that report showed the last time a new key was negotiated.

thanks for your comment. the SA lifetime is 24 hours indeed. A new key is also negotiated when a tunnel is established. from what I understand that output is not telling us the reason for rekey, is that correct?
Dan CraciunIT ConsultantCommented:
That is correct. That command only gives you the current state, not the history.
