Dashboard

The Dashboard is the first window displayed for administrators logging into FortiNAC. It can be accessed from the Bookmarks Menu. Depending on the permissions of each administrative user, some menus may not appear.

Dashboard panels display to provide you with additional information at a glance. Much of this data can be accessed from other parts of the system. Each panel can be closed and later restored using the Add Panel button. Panels can be moved by dragging and dropping the panel to a new location. See Navigation and Filters for information on common navigation tools and data filters.

Changes to the setup of the dashboard, such as panel position, panels displayed, panel expanded/collapsed state, panel refresh interval and filters are saved for the logged in user. These user preferences are stored in the database and are honored regardless of where the user logs into FortiNAC. Changes to thresholds on the Performance panel are global and affect all users.

The Device Summary, Host Summary, User Summary and License Information panels allow you to drill down to more detailed data by clicking on one of the icons displayed. For example, click on the Registered Host Icon to display a list of registered hosts. From that list click on the MAC Address of a single host to display the Host Properties window for that host.

Note

Data displayed in the panels listed below is sample data and may not be the same as data displayed on your Dashboard.

The Dashboard contains the following panels:

Alarm

Persistent Agent summary

Host summary

Scans

Views

Performance

Network device summary

Summary

License information

User summary

Security summary
