Appendix B: Maximum configuration values

These tables provide the maximum number of configuration objects for FortiWeb products. They are not a guarantee of performance. For values such as hardware specifications that do not vary by software version or configuration, see your model’s QuickStart Guide.

Due to resource constraints, the maximums for certain objects apply to each appliance globally and you cannot increase them by adding ADOMs. For example, the limit for server policies is a global one that applies to the appliance, you can configure only 256 server policies, regardless of how many ADOMs you use.

While the maximums for other objects apply at the ADOM level only, so you can add objects beyond the maximum by adding ADOMs. For example, for a FortiWeb 1000D, you can configure up to 1024 URL Access polices for each of the 32 possible ADOMs because the limit applies to each ADOM, not the appliance.

Depending on the RAM available, adding the maximum number of objects to multiple ADOMs can have an impact on your FortiWeb's performance. Fortinet recommends that you do not add the maximum number of objects in all ADOMs.

Per appliance configuration maximums - ADOMs, server policies, Virtual IPs, server objects, and domains in ML policies

The configuration maximums for the following items apply at the appliance level, and the maximums vary on each model, as shown in the following table.

Maximum values on FortiWeb-VM

FortiWeb-VM has 10 virtual network interfaces (vNICs, or virtual ports).

The maximum number of server policies initially varies by the maximum amount of virtual memory (vRAM) available to FortiWeb-VM, up to a hard limit. FortiWeb-VM allows up to 20 policies for the first 1 GB of vRAM, then an additional 15 policies per additional 1 GB of vRAM, up to a maximum of 150 server policies.

In other words, at first, the server policy limit increases linearly with vRAM. But after 10 GB of vRAM, further increasing the vRAM no longer has an affect. 11 GB or more vRAM allows up to 150 server policies. Keep in mind that increasing the vRAM may still benefit performance.

Appendix B: Maximum configuration values

These tables provide the maximum number of configuration objects for FortiWeb products. They are not a guarantee of performance. For values such as hardware specifications that do not vary by software version or configuration, see your model’s QuickStart Guide.

Due to resource constraints, the maximums for certain objects apply to each appliance globally and you cannot increase them by adding ADOMs. For example, the limit for server policies is a global one that applies to the appliance, you can configure only 256 server policies, regardless of how many ADOMs you use.

While the maximums for other objects apply at the ADOM level only, so you can add objects beyond the maximum by adding ADOMs. For example, for a FortiWeb 1000D, you can configure up to 1024 URL Access polices for each of the 32 possible ADOMs because the limit applies to each ADOM, not the appliance.
