Interface speedtest

An interface speedtest can be performed on WAN interfaces in the GUI. The results of the test can be added to the interface's Estimated bandwidth. An SD‑WAN Network Monitor license is required.

The License widget and the System > FortiGuard page display the SD‑WAN Network Monitor license status.

To run an interface speedtest in the GUI:
  1. Go to Network > Interfaces.
  2. Edit a WAN interface. The interfaces can be grouped by role using the grouping dropdown on the right side of the toolbar.
  3. Click Execute speed test in the right pane.

  4. When the test completes, click Apply results to estimated bandwidth.

    The speedtest results are used to populate the Estimated bandwidth fields.

  5. Click OK.
Note

The FortiGate must be connected to FortiGuard, and able to reach either the AWS or Google speedtest servers.
