system performance status

Use this command to display FortiGate CPU usage, memory usage, network usage, sessions, virus, IPS attacks, and system up time.

History

The following table shows all newly added, changed, or removed entries as of FortiOS 6.0.

Command Description

Memory: ... freeable

A new memory paramater (freeable) has been added, to highlight the amount of cache that can be freed.

The addition of freeable to used memory can help to distinguish extreme levels of memory usage, and how it can be alleviated.

Syntax

get system performance status

 

Variable Description

CPU states

The percentages of CPU cycles used by user, system, nice and idle categories of processes. These categories are:

user -CPU usage of normal user-space processes

system -CPU usage of kernel

nice - CPU usage of user-space processes having other-than-normal running priority

idle - Idle CPU cycles

Adding user, system, and nice produces the total CPU usage as seen on the CPU widget on the web-based system status dashboard.

Memory states

The percentage of memory used.

Average network usage

The average amount of network traffic in kbps in the last 1, 10 and 30 minutes.

Average sessions

The average number of sessions connected to the FortiGate unit over the list 1, 10 and 30 minutes.

Virus caught

The number of viruses the FortiGate unit has caught in the last 1 minute.

IPS attacks blocked

The number of IPS attacks that have been blocked in the last 1 minute.

Uptime

How long since the FortiGate unit has been restarted.
