Dashboard

Select Dashboard to see a snapshot of FortiSwitch activity that occurred in the last 24 hours:

Select Refresh to update the statistics and graphs.

Select Widgets Control to change which widgets are displayed in the Dashboard page.

Use the Local Time Zone/UTC slider to control which time zone is displayed in the Dashboard page.

Use the °F/°C slider to control whether the Top PCB Temperature widget uses Fahrenheit or Celsius.

Use the Quick Links drop-down list to view the switch topology, deploy switches, add zero-touch configurations, or add scheduled upgrade configurations.

The Dashboard page provides the following information:

  • Online Devices—The number and percentage of managed devices that are online
  • POE Port Utilized—The number and percentage of Power over Ethernet (PoE) ports that are being used
  • POE Power Delivered—The number of Watts and the percentage of PoE delivered
  • Critical Events Last 24 Hours—The number of critical events in the last 24 hours
  • Top POE Power Utilization—The five FortiSwitch units with the highest PoE usage
  • POE Power over Threshold—The five FortiSwitch units that have a current power budget that exceeds a specified percentage of the total power budget
  • Top VLANs Count—The five FortiSwitch units with the most VLANs.
  • Pluggable Modules—The number and types of modules inserted in FortiSwitch units, as well as any warnings or alerts
  • DHCP Snooping—The number of DHCP-snooping-enabled VLANs, the number of dynamically learned DHCP-snooping entries in the client and server databases, and the number of DHCP-snooping entries in the limit database
  • IGMP Snooping—The number of switches and VLANs enabled for IGMP snooping and the number of dynamic IGMP-snooping groups
  • OS Versions—Which FortiSwitchOS versions are being used by managed FortiSwitch units
  • Switches & License—The number of online and offline managed FortiSwitch units, the number of used and available licenses, the number of FortiSwitch units in the switch inventory, and the number of switch tags
  • Active Configurations—The number of enabled and disabled zero-touch configurations and scheduled upgrades, the number of running and stopped packet capture profiles, and the number of switch configurations
  • 802.1x VLANs and Session State—Statistics for switches using IEEE 802.1x authentication
  • Auto Backup Config Summary (Last 24 hours)—The number of scheduled configuration backups that failed in the last 24 hours and which FortiSwitch units were not backed up
  • Top Switch Active Clients (Last 1 hour)—The number of learned MAC addresses in the last hour for the top five FortiSwitch units
  • Top Switch CPU Utilization (Last 1 hour)—The five FortiSwitch units with the top CPU usage in the last hour for the top five FortiSwitch units
  • Top Switch Memory Utilization (Last 1 hour)—The five FortiSwitch units with the top memory usage in the last hour for the top five FortiSwitch units
  • Top Switch PCB Temperature (Last 1 hour)—The five FortiSwitch units with the top printed circuit board (PCB) temperatures for the last hour
  • Top Port RX Utilization (Last 1 hour)—The five top percentages of bandwidth usage for received traffic for the last hour
  • Top Port TX Utilization (Last 1 hour)—The five top percentages of bandwidth usage for transmitted traffic for the last hour
  • Top Port Losses (Last 1 hour)—The number of packets per second that were dropped or had errors in the last hour for the top five FortiSwitch ports
  • Critical Events—Critical events in the last 24 hours
