LED State Description
 STATUS Off The FortiGate-6000F is powered off.
Green The FortiGate-6000F is powered on and operating normally.
Flashing Green The FortiGate-6000F is starting up.
ALARM Red Major alarm. One or more analog sensors have surpassed a critical or non-recoverable (NR) threshold causing an alarm. When a critical threshold has been reached, it means that a condition has been detected that has surpassed an operating tolerance. For example, a temperature has increased above the allowed operating temperature range.
Amber Minor alarm. One or more analog sensors (excluding PSUs) has surpassed a major or critical (CR) threshold. Any sensor, including sensors on PSUs, has generated an alert. Sensor alert criteria is defined per sensor. For analog sensors, alerts usually mean passing an upper critical (UC) or lower critical (LC) threshold. For other sensors, an alert could mean a flag bit is indicating an anomaly.
Off No alarms
HA Off The FortiGate-6000F is operating in normal mode.
Green The FortiGate-6000F is operating in HA mode.
Red The FortiGate-6000F is operating in HA mode and the HA heartbeat cannot find the other FortiGate-6000F in the HA cluster.
PWR Off The FortiGate-6000F is powered off.
Green The FortiGate-6000F is powered on and operating normally.
