Accounting for Firewall Filters Overview

Juniper Networks devices can collect various kinds of data about traffic passing through the device. You can set up one or more accounting profiles that specify some common characteristics of this data, including the following:

  • Fields used in the accounting records.

  • Number of files that the routing platform retains before discarding, and the number of bytes per file.

  • Polling period that the system uses to record the data

There are several types of accounting profiles: interface, firewall filter, source class and destination class usage, and Routing Engine. If you apply the same profile name to both a firewall filter and an interface, it causes an error.
