Administration Guide

FortiView

FortiView is a comprehensive monitoring system for your network that integrates real-time and historical data into a single view. It can log and monitor threats to networks, filter data on multiple levels, keep track of administrative activity, and more.

FortiView allows you to use multiple filters in the consoles, enabling you to narrow your view to a specific time, by user ID or local IP address, by application, and others. You can use it to investigate traffic activity such as user uploads/downloads or videos watched on YouTube on a network-wide user group or on an individual-user level.

In FortiView dashboards, you can view summaries of log data such as top threats to your network, top sources of network traffic, and top destinations of network traffic.

Depending on which dashboard you are viewing, information can be viewed in different formats: table, bubble, map, or tile. Alternative chart types are available in each widget's Settings menu.

For each summary, you can drill down to see more details.

FortiGate, FortiCarrier, and FortiClient EMS devices support FortiView.
