Determining the primary FPM

You can determine which FPM is operating as the primary FPM by using the diagnose load-balance status command.

The following example diagnose load-balance status output for a FortiGate-7060E showing that the FPM in slot 3 is the primary FPM. The command output also shows the status of all of the FPMs in the FortiGate-7060E. The output also shows that the FPM in slot 4 is either missing or down.
