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.
