Probe Latest Policy Hits

You can probe latest policy hits to get the latest policy hit count. The hit count is incremented by 1 each time an entry is matched. When you click the Probe Latest Policy Hits option, Security Director sends a remote procedure call (RPC) <get-security-policies-hit-count></get-security-policies-hit-count> to device and the device responds with the hit-count details. This hit-count information is stored in the PolicyHitCountEntity table in Security Director database.

To probe the latest policy hits:

  1. Select Configure > Firewall Policies > Standard/Unified Policies.
  2. Right-click a policy and select Probe Latest Policy Hits.

    The Job Details page is displayed with the status and hit count details.

You can view the hit count on the policy rules page. See Firewall Policy Rules Main Page Fields.


By default, the Enable Policy Hit Count Data Collection option is enabled and the policy hit count is automatically probed everyday at 2 AM. To modify the hit count settings in Junos Space Network Management Platform, see Modifying Settings of Junos Space Applications.

To reset the hit count for all the rules in a policy, right click the policy in Security Director and select Reset Policy Hits for All Rules. Resetting sets the current hit count to zero for all the rules in the policy.
