FortiGate-6000 Handbook

Configuration sync monitor

From the Global GUI you can now go to Monitor > Configuration Sync Monitor to view the configuration synchronization status of your FortiGate-6000 and its individual FPCs.

The Configuration Sync monitor shows information for the FortiGate-6000 component that you have logged into. For example:

  • If you log into a FortiGate-6000 management board, you can view the configuration status of the management board and all of the FPCs in the FortiGate-6000.
  • If you log into an FPC, you can see the configuration status of that FPC and the management board.
  • If you log into the management board of a FortiGate-6000 HA cluster, you will see the configuration status of the management board and the FPCs of the FortiGate-6000 that you have logged into. The display does not contain HA-specific information or information about the other FortiGate-6000 in the cluster.

Synchronization information includes the configuration status, role, up time, time since the last heartbeat was received from the component, and the total number of heartbeat packets received by the component. You can also customize the columns that appear. If a component has failed, it will be removed from the list. If a component is out of synchronization this will be reflected on the Configuration Status list.

If you are logged into the primary FortiGate-6000 in an HA configuration, the Configuration sync monitor also shows the status of the secondary FortiGate-6000 management board.

You can hover your mouse cursor over any of the FPCs and view more detailed information including the hostname, serial number, firmware version, management IP address, special management port number, CPU usage, memory usage, and session count. 

From the pop up you can also select Login to log into the FPC's GUI using its management IP address and special port number. You can also select Configure to change the FPC's host name.
