Optimize FortiManager REST API querying of FortiGate

Longer-term history (up to 8 days) can be stored by FortiManager and available for drill-down and and trending analysis. This feature is enabled in CLI and should be assessed for deployment size, available storage, etc.

History graphs are now available for the SD-WAN Monitoring. You can View bandwidth, packet loss, latency and jitter history for each device / WAN-link interface and cloud applications. Additionally, the interface allows drill-down to selected time periods for deeper inspection of those events.

  • Go to SD-WAN Monitoring > Table view. For each device / interface you can now see Bandwidth / Packet Loss / Latency / Jitter history
  • Go to SD-WAN Monitoring > Table view. For each device, you can now see the interface status history.
  • This feature is only for ADOM 6.2 and FortiOS 6.2.
  • FortiOS 6.0 does not support history API and hence the drill-down is disabled in table view.

Enable or Disable SD-WAN History Monitoring

Enable/disable the SD-WAN history monitoring from the command line. The default is disable.

To enable SD-WAN History Monitoring:

config system admin setting

set sdwan-monitor-history enable

end

To disable SD-WAN History Monitoring:

config system admin setting

set sdwan-monitor-history disable

end

When SD-WAN History Monitoring is disabled

Go to SD-WAN Monitoring > Table View. The drill-down is available only for 10 minutes and is directly queried from FortiGate devices.

When SD-WAN History Monitoring is enabled

Go to SD-WAN Monitoring > Table View. The drill-down monitor can now select different time period for last 24/12/6/1/N hours, and custom days.

Maximum of 8 days data can be kept in the FortiManager database.
