The FortiGate-6000 includes a number of custom dashboard widgets that provide extra or custom information for FortiGate-6000 systems.
The Security Fabric 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 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 synchronized and communicating with the management board and identifies the primary (master) FPC.
You can create multiple Interface Bandwidth widgets to show traffic that is transmitted and received by any FortiGate-6000 interface. You can create Interface Bandwidth widgets for:
- Any physical interface
- Any link aggregation (LAG) interface
- Any redundant interface
- Any individual member of a LAG or a redundant interface
- Any VLAN interface
- Any IPsec VPN tunnel interface
Interface bandwidth widgets display all of the traffic processed by the interface, independently of how the traffic is load balanced.
You can create individual Interface Bandwidth widgets for each interface that you want to monitor. After you create a widget, you can choose to display traffic for the last hour, 24 hours, or week, updated in real time.
To display similar information from the CLI for physical interfaces, use the following command:
diagnose hardware deviceinfo nic <interface-name>
To display similar information from the CLI for LAG and VLAN interfaces, use the following command:
diagnose netlink interface list <interface-name>
You can create multiple Resource Usage widgets to show CPU use, disk usage (on the FortiGate-6301F and 6501F), log rate, memory use, session creation rate, and the number of active sessions. You can create separate widgets for management traffic and for data traffic. After you have created a widget, you can choose to display data for the last 1 minute to 24 hours updated in real time.
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.
