Hardware Acceleration

Determining the network processors installed in your FortiGate

Use the following command to list the NP7 processors in your FortiGate unit:

diagnose npu np7 port-list

Use either of the following command to list the NP6 processors in your FortiGate unit:

get hardware npu np6 port-list

diagnose npu np6 port-list

Use the following command to list the NP6XLite processors in your FortiGate unit:

get hardware npu np6xlite port-list

Use either of the following commands to list the NP6Lite processors in your FortiGate unit:

get hardware npu np6lite port-list

diagnose npu np6lite port-list

To list other network processors on your FortiGate unit, use the following CLI command.

get hardware npu <model> list

<model> can be legacy, np1, np2 or np4.

The output lists the interfaces that have the specified processor. For example, for a FortiGate-5001B:

get hardware npu np4 list

ID    Model         Slot       Interface

0     On-board                 port1 port2 port3 port4

                               fabric1 base1 npu0-vlink0 npu0-vlink1

1     On-board                 port5 port6 port7 port8

                               fabric2 base2 npu1-vlink0 npu1-vlink1

The npu0-vlink0, npu1-vlink1 etc interfaces are used for accelerating inter-VDOM links.
