Report Performance

For reports that you run regularly, set up the following:

  • Put those reports into a group.
  • Schedule those reports. If possible, schedule reports to run at off-peak hours and do not schedule reports to run at the same time as log maintenance tasks.
  • Enable auto-cache for those reports.

Grouping reports has these advantages:

  • Reduce the number of hcache tables.
  • Improve auto-cache completion time.
  • Improve report performance and reduce report completion time.

Consider grouping reports in these conditions:

  • If you use the same or a similar report template for different FortiGates in the same ADOM.
  • If you regularly use different filters on your reports.

Other ways to improve report performance include:

  • Avoid running reports at the same time as log aggregation or log transfer.
  • Avoid queries to external sources such as DNS (for name resolution) or LDAP (for obtaining a user list).
