FortiMeter allows you turn FortiOS-VMs and FortiWebOS-VMs on and off as needed, paying only for the volume and consumption of traffic that you use. These VMs are also sometimes called pay-as-you-go VMs.
You must meet the following requirements to use metered VMs:
- You must have a FortiMeter license.
- The FortiMeter license must be linked with the FortiManager unit by using FortiCare.
