Monitoring FortiWeb devices

When you create a device group in Device Manager, the system will automatically create a dashboard for this group in Monitor. The dashboard displays the threat statistics for the group and each device. It also displays other information for individual devices, including the up/down State, the Memory/CPU usage, Traffic In/Out, TCP Connections, and Threats.

As shown in the following graph, the dashboard contains five parts:

  1. The Dashboard Selector. You can click the arrow icon to open a drop down list, from which you can select the dashboard you want to view. The dashboard created by the system has the same name with the device group.
  2. The display area of threat statistics for the device group. In this area, you can view the statistic graphs for the group, including Threats Classified by Type, Threats Classified by Country, and Group Threats. You can click the arrow icon beside Group Threats to collapse the graphs.
  3. The tool bar of the dashboard. It contains the Zoom out tool, the Time Range Selector, the Save button, and the Refresh button.
    • The Zoom out tool . Use it to display the statistics for a longer period in the graph. For example, if the current time range is Last 15 minutes and you click the Zoom out button once, the time range displayed in the graph will change to Last 30 minutes.
    • The Time Range Selector. You can select a preset quick range or customize the time range by specifying the beginning and end time, select the refreshing time interval, then click Apply. The dashboard will show statistics for the selected time period and refresh the statistics as specified.
    • The Save button . When you make changes to the current dashboard, for example, zoom out or change the time range, adjust the position of the graphs, please remember to click the Save button, otherwise your changes will be lost when you switch to another dashboard.
    • The Refresh button. Click the Refresh button to refresh the statistics in real time.
  4. The Dashboard & Widget tool.
    For the dashboards created by the system, you can edit, and reset them.

    You can create your own dashboard by clicking the Add Dashboard button; for the self-created dashboards, you can delete the dashboards, or customize the forms of the widgets. See Managing dashboard for more information.

    For the widgets (graphs), you can add, edit, or delete them or adjust the position of the widgets.

    With the Global Setting button, you can configure the data collection interval and data retention days.
  5. The display area of statistics for individual devices. In this area, you can view the statistic graphs for individual devices, including the up/down State, the Memory/CPU usage, Traffic In/Out, TCP Connections, and Threats.
