Dashboards

A dashboard is a collection of widgets that show the status of your devices, network, and Security Fabric at a glance. Widgets are condensed monitors that display a summary of the key details about your FortiGate pertaining to routing, VPN, DHCP, devices, users, quarantine, and wireless connections.
