FortiGate-7000 dashboard widgets

The FortiGate-7000 includes a number of custom dashboard widgets that provide extra or custom information for FortiGate-7000 systems.

Security Fabric

The Security Fabric dashboard widget shows the FIMs and FPMs in your FortiGate-7000 system. You can hover over the components in the Security Fabric dashboard widget to see details about each components host name, serial number, model, firmware version, and management IP address.

Interface Bandwidth

You can add Interface Bandwidth dashboard widgets to view traffic in and out of any FortiGate-7000 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 FPMs. 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.
