Support for link aggregation

Interface link-aggregation is now supported on high-end FortiAnalyzer appliances and VM platforms to provide interface redundancy and load balance.

Note

This feature is only available in high-end FortiAnalyzer devices (FAZ1000F and above), and VM platforms.

To create an aggregate interface in the GUI:
  1. Go to System Settings > Network.
  2. In the toolbar, click Create New. The Create New Interface window opens.

  3. In the Name field, enter a name for the interface (for example, Aggregation1)
  4. Click the Members field to select the available ports.

  5. In the IP Address/Netmask field, enter a minimum of two IP addresses. At least two ports need to be up for the aggregate interface to work.

  6. Apply the default settings for the rest of the configurations.

  7. Click OK. The aggregation interface is created.
To verify the aggregate interface is up with the CLI:

FAZ3000F # config system interface

(interface)# edit Aggregation1

(Aggregation1)# set status up

(Aggregation1)# end

FAZ3000F #

To configure the aggregation interface in FortiGate:
  1. In FortiGate go to Network > Interfaces, and configure the aggregation interface using the same subnet as FortiAnalyzer.

  2. Go to Log & Report > Log Settings, and configure the logs sent to FortiAnalyzer through the aggregation interface.

  3. In FortiAnalyzer, go to Device Manager to confirm FortiGate has established a connection with FortiAnalyzer through the aggregation interface.
