Global and per-VDOM resources

Global and per-VDOM resources can be configured when the FortiGate is in Split-Task or Multi VDOM mode. Global resources apply to resources that are shared by the whole FortiGate, while per-VDOM resources are specific to each VDOM.

By default, all per-VDOM resource settings are set to have no limits. This means that any single VDOM can use all of the FortiGate device's resources. This could deprive other VDOMs of the resources that they require, to the point that could be unable to function. We recommend settings maximum values on the resources that are vital to you.

To configure global resources:
  1. In the Global VDOM, go to System > Global Resources.
  2. Enable the resource's override in the Override Maximum column, then enter the override value.

  3. Click Apply.

    To reset the all of the override values, click Reset All.

To configure per-VDOM resources:
  1. In the Global VDOM, go to System > VDOM.
  2. Edit the VDOM whose resources need to be configured.
  3. Enable the resource's override in the Override Maximum column, then enter the override value.
  4. Optionally, enter a value in the Guaranteed column.

  5. Click OK.

    To reset the all of the override values, click Reset All.
