Hyperscale Firewall Guide

Enabling hyperscale firewall features

Use the following global command to enable hyperscale firewall features for your FortiGate:

config global

config system npu

set policy-offload-level full-offload

end

Once you have enabled global hyperscale firewall features, you must edit each hyperscale firewall VDOM and use the following command to enable hyperscale firewall features for that VDOM.

config system settings

set policy-offload-level full-offload

end

The following options are available for this command:

disable disable hyperscale firewall features and disable offloading DoS policy sessions to NP7 processors for this VDOM. All sessions are initiated by the CPU. Sessions that can be offloaded are sent to NP7 processors. This is the default setting.

dos-offload offload DoS policy sessions to NP7 processors for this VDOM. All other sessions are initiated by the CPU. Sessions that can be offloaded are sent to NP7 processors.

full-offload enable hyperscale firewall features for the current hyperscale firewall VDOM. This option is only available if the FortiGate is licensed for hyperscale firewall features. DoS policy sessions are also offloaded to NP7 processors. All other sessions are initiated by the CPU. Sessions that can be offloaded are sent to NP7 processors.

Note

For more information about DoS policy hardware acceleration and how it varies depending on the policy offload level, see DoS policy hardware acceleration.
