FortiGate-6000 dashboard widgets

The FortiGate-6000 includes a number of custom dashboard widgets that provide extra or custom information for FortiGate-6000 systems.

Security Fabric

The Security Fabric dashboard widget shows the components in your FortiGate-6000 system including the management board and FPCs. You can hover over the components in the Security Fabric dashboard widget to see each component's host name, serial number, model, firmware version, and management IP address. The Security Fabric widget also indicates if the FPCs are in synch and communicating with the management board and also indicates the primary (master) FPC.

Interface Bandwidth

You can add Interface Bandwidth widgets to view traffic in and out of any FortiGate-6000 interface. You can add an Interface Bandwidth widget to the dashboard for:

  • Any physical interface.
  • Any link aggregation (LAG) interface.
  • Any member of a LAG.
  • Any VLAN interface.
  • Any IPsec VPN tunnel interface.
  • Any redundant interface.

The displayed data includes all of the traffic processed by the interface, independent of how the traffic is load balanced.

You can add individual Interface Bandwidth widgets for each interface that you want to monitor. After you have added the widget you can choose to display traffic for the last hour, 24 hours or week. The data displayed on the widget updates in real time.

From the CLI, for physical interfaces, you can use the diagnose hardware deviceinfo nic <interface-name> command to view transmitted and received packets.

For LAG and VLAN interfaces you can display transmitted and received packets using the diagnose netlink interface list <interface-name> command.

Resource Usage

You can create multiple Resource Usage dashboard widgets to show CPU use, log rate, memory use, session creation rate, and the number of active sessions for the management board and for individual FPCs. After you have added the widget you can choose to display data for times ranging between 1 minute to 24 hours.The data displayed on the widget updates in real time.

Sensor Information

The Sensor Information dashboard widget displays FortiGate-6000 temperature, power supply (PSU), and fan speed information. You can click on any item on the widget to display data collected by individual sensors.
