Cookbook - Logging Traffic and Using FortiView

  • FortiGate 5.4
  • 4 years ago

In this video, you will learn how to configure logging to record information about sessions processed by your FortiGate, and use FortiView to look at the traffic logs and see how your network is being used. FortiView is a logging tool made up of multiple dashboards that show real-time and historical logs. The dashboards can be filtered to show specific results, and you can drill down for more information about a particular session. Each dashboard focuses on a different aspect of your network traffic, such as traffic sources of WiFi clients. Some FortiView dashboards, such as Applications and Web Sites, require security profiles to be applied to traffic before they will display any results.
