CLI Reference

config security antivirus settings

FortiADC's antivirus (AV) service relies on the system's AV engine and signature databases. The AV engine is upgraded whenever new functions are added. The Updated daemon is responsible for updating the AV engine and the signature databases.

The system offers three types of AV signature databases, namely, Normal, Extended, and Extreme. They represent different levels of AV services. In order for FortiADC to provide you with the level of AV service that you desire, you must choose the right signature database.

Syntax

config security antivirus settings

set default-db {extended | extreme | normal}

set ramdisk-size <integer>

end

default-db

Set the default signature database.

  • Normal: The regular virus database, which includes “In the Wild” viruses and most commonly seen viruses on the network. It provides regular protection.
  • Extended: The extended virus database, which includes both “In the Wild” viruses and a large collection of zoo viruses that are no longer seen in recent virus studies. It provides enhanced security protection.
  • Extreme: The extreme virus database, which includes both “In the Wild” viruses and all known zoo viruses that are no longer seen in recent virus studies. It provides the highest level of security protection.

ramdisk-size

Specify the ramdisk size in GB. (Range: 0 - 12 GB, default: 0 GB).

Note: When the changes to the ramdisk configuration is committed, you will be prompted to restart the device for the configuration to take effect.
