From the Global GUI you can now go to Monitor > Configuration Sync Monitor to view the configuration synchronization status of your FortiGate-7000F and its individual FIMs and FPMs. The Configuration Sync monitor also displays the current number of sessions, memory usage, and CPU usage for the both FIMs and each of the FPMs in the FortiGate-7000F. This display allows you to separate management plane resource usage (FIMs) from data plane resource usage (FPMs).
When adding a FortiGate-7000F to an existing security fabric, for normal operation you must authorize the FortiGate-7000F and all of the FIM and FPMs on the root FortiGate. Otherwise, the FortiGate-7000F primary FIM will not be able to communicate with the other FIM and the FPMs. No entries will appear on the Configuration Sync Monitor until all of the FIMs and FPMs have been authorized with the root FortiGate.
The Configuration sync monitor shows information for the FortiGate-7000F component that you have logged into. For example:
- If you log into the primary FIM, you can view the configuration status of all of the FIMs and FPMs in the FortiGate-7000F.
- 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-7000F 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-7000F in the HA cluster.
Synchronization information includes the configuration status, role, current number of sessions, current memory usage, current CPU usage, time since the last heartbeat was received from the component, the total number of heartbeat packets received from the component and up time. 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 in the Configuration Status list.
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's GUI using its management IP address and special port number. You can also select Configure to change the component's host name.
