Explanation of Drop code and Module-ID Values in Packet Capture Output (SonicOS 126.96.36.199)
03/26/2020 1017 8500
When viewing output on the System | Packet Capture page, there are two fields that display potentially useful diagnostic information in numeric format:
- The Module-ID field provides information on the specific area of the firewall (UTM) appliance's firmware that handled a particular packet.
- The Drop-Code field provides a reason why the appliance dropped a particular packet.
This article provides a list of the Module-ID and Drop-Code numbers along with their meanings.
The following Drop-Codes were extracted from SonicOS Enhanced 188.8.131.52-26n firmware version, however these codes may change when a new firmware is available.
