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-7000 and its individual FIMs, or FPMs.

The Configuration Sync monitor shows information for the FortiGate-7000 component that you have logged into. For example:

  • If you log into a FortiGate-7000 primary FIM, you can view the configuration status of all of the FIMs and FPMs in the FortiGate-7000.
  • If you log into an the other FIM or an FPM, you can see the configuration status of that FIM or FPM and the primary FIM.
  • If you log into the primary FIM of a FortiGate-7000 HA cluster you will see the configuration status of the primary FIM that you have logged into. The display does not contain HA-specific information or information about the other FortiGate-7000 in the HA cluster.

Synchronization information includes the configuration status, role, up time, and time since the last heartbeat was received from the component. 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 FortiGate-7000 primary unit in an HA configuration, the configuration sync monitor also shows the status of the secondary FortiGate-7000 primary FIM.

You can hover your mouse cursor over any of the components and view more detailed information about the component 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 component using its management IP address and special port number. You can also select Configure to change the component's host name.
