Administration Guide

Centrally monitoring the HA cluster

The Centralized Monitor menu allows administrators on the primary FortiMail unit of an HA cluster to monitor the state and activity of each HA cluster member, including CPU, memory, disk usage, email throughput, and other mail statistic summaries.

For active-active HA clusters, in cases where a FortiAnalyzer is not present to aggregate logs, administrators may conduct log searches across the cluster members. This streamlines the monitoring process, avoiding the need to log into each individual cluster member.

Note

The centralized monitoring feature is license based. If you do not purchase the MSSP license, this feature is not available.

This functionality is only available once centralized monitor is enabled under System > High Availability > Configuration. Alternatively, the feature can also be enabled in the CLI Console using the following command:

config system ha

set central-statistics enable

end
