I'm trying to monitor bandwidth usage on my Palo Alto firewall using SNMP. However only the ifInOctets & ifOutOctets counters of VLAN interfaces are updated. The counters for real interfaces are all 0. Is there something I need to turn on?

Edit: Palo Alto 3020

We are monitoring Palo Alto 3020 with Solarwind NPM and able to get in BW usage logs for both VLAN & physical interface. You can refer the below link for detail config https://knowledgebase.paloaltonetworks.com/KCSArticleDetail?id=kA10g000000ClHaCAK


I figured out that it isn't possible to monitor bandwidth on this specific device by browsing through the MIB. I'm now monitoring bandwidth with Netflow.
