Physical Topology

The Physical Topology view shows the devices in the Security Fabric and the devices they are connected to. You can also select whether or not to view access layer devices in this topology. To see the Physical Topology, in FortiManager GUI, select Fabric View > Physical Topology.

The Physical Topology view displays your network as a bubble chart of interconnected devices. These devices are grouped based on the upstream device they are connected to. The bubbles appear smaller or larger, based on their traffic volume. You can double-click any bubble to resize it and view more information about the device. FortiGate devices and other networking devices are depicted as boxes.

You can hover over the icon for each FortiGate to see information, such as serial number, hostname, and firmware version. You can hover over the bubbles of other devices to see information about them, such as name, IP address, and traffic volume data.

Security Fabric Rating recommendations are also shown in the topology, beside the icon of the device the recommendations apply to.
