FortiMeter

FortiMeter allows you to view the volume and consumption of traffic that you use for FortiOS-VMs. Metered VMs require that you have a FortiMeter license and have linked that license with a FortiManager unit. For more information on setting up and using FortiMeter, see the FortiManager Administration Guide.

Note

FortiMeter is not available in all accounts.

In FortiMeter, you can select Prepay FortiMeter Group or Postpay FortiMeter Group to view each license group.

  • Prepaid FortiMeter Group: Includes FortiOS-VMs where usage is prepaid by purchasing points. The remaining amount of points available to each FortiMeter group is displayed.
  • Postpaid FortiMeter Group: Includes FortiOS-VMs billed monthly based on usage. The points consumed by each FortiMeter group are displayed.

While in any tab, you can use the search bar to search for groups or assets matching your entered search criteria, and click a column title to change the order of displayed information.

Select a prepaid or postpaid group to view the Usage Report for members of that group, including the serial numbers, VM names, points available/consumed, packages, VM vCPU/RAM, and hours running for each member in the group.

In the FortiManagers tab, you can see the FortiManagers associated with each group, including the number of units controlled by each device.
