The Watchguard Service Layer

This layer helps the administrator in understanding the following capabilities of the firewall such as:

  • Packet traffic through each firewall policy
  • Numerical statistics relating to the packets discarded due to various errors for each firewall policy
  • For each VPN pair and VPN tunnel, you can identify the traffic flow, packets sent/received statistics, error packets discarded etc.
  • Inbound and Outbound data transmission through each protocol of the security association and error packets discared for the security association

Figure 1 lists the tests that are currently mapped to the Watchguard Service layer.
