Updated System Events log page

The Log & Report > Events page is now renamed System Events. The System Events page includes:

  • A Summary tab that displays the top five most frequent events in each type of event log and a line chart to show aggregated events by each severity level. Clicking on a peak in the line chart will display the specific event count for the selected severity level.

  • A Details tab that displays individual, detailed log views for event type.

Clicking on an event in the Summary tab will automatically bring users to the Details tab with the appropriate filters applied.

Note

Disk logging and historical FortiView must be enabled for the Summary tab to display valid data.

To review system events in the GUI:
  1. Go to Log & Report > System Events. The Summary tab opens.

  2. On the right-side of the screen, select the time range from the dropdown list.

    The line chart will display all of the system events, and the non-empty event cards will list up to five Top Event entries within the time range set.

    Note

    Data is retrieved from FortiView with the 5 minutes range updated first. When selecting either the 1 hour or 24 hours time range, there may be a delay to update Top Event entries.

  3. Review the details of system events:

    • Click the event card name.

      The Details tab displays all event entries for the selected type of event log. The type of event log can be changed in the top-right, dropdown list.

    • Click a Top Event entry in an event card.

      The Details tab displays system events with filters for the selected event entry and time range. The type of event log can be changed in the top-right, dropdown list.

Up to 100 Top Event entries can be listed in the CLI using the diagnose fortiview result event-log command.

To list system events in the CLI:
# diagnose fortiview result event-log

    data(1646760000-1646846401):
    0). subtype-ha | eventname-HA device interface failed | level-warning | count-1 |

    14). subtype-user | eventname-Authentication lockout | level-warning | count-1 | 
    15). subtype-user | eventname-FortiGuard override failed | level-warning | count-1 | 

The data is collected from FortiView for the last 24 hours by default. To specify a specific time range, customize the time filter using the diagnose fortiview time command.

To filter the time range of system events in the CLI:
# diagnose fortiview time <arg1> <arg2>

Where <arg1> is the start time in YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS and <arg2> is the end time in YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS.
