Allow Disabling SOC View for Performance Tuning

To allow tuning of CPU and memory usage in high capacity environments, a new option has been added to disable SOC view, which stops the background processing for this feature.

  • On FortiAnalyzer, the SOC module can be disabled from the CLI with: config system global - set disable-module fortiview-noc.
    Once disabled, the GUI will hide the SOC module, including FortiView and Monitors.

  • On FortiGate, if the FAZ SOC module is disabled, when FortiGate attempts to retrieve FortiView data from FortiAnalyzer, FortiAnalyzer will return the message: Server Error: FortiView\/NOC function is disabled on FortiAnalyzer.
    The FortiGate GUI will display the message: Failed to retrieve FortiView data.
