Dashboard

The Dashboard contains widgets that provide performance and status information and enable you to configure basic system settings.

The following widgets and options are available:

Widget

Description

System Information

Displays basic information about the FortiManager system, such as up time and firmware version. For more information, see System Information widget.

From this widget you can manually update the FortiManager firmware to a different release. For more information, see Updating the system firmware.

System Resources

Displays the real-time and historical usage status of the CPU, memory and hard disk. For more information, see System Resources widget.

License Information

Displays license status and how many endpoints of the supported maximum are connected to the Micro-FortiGuard Server for FortiClient. See License Information widget.

From this widget you can manually upload a license to increase the maximum number of endpoints that can be connected.

Unit Operation

Graphically displays the status of each port. The port name indicates its status by its color. Green indicates the port is connected. Grey indicates there is no connection.

Hover the cursor over the ports to view a pop-up that displays the full name of the interface, the IP address and netmask, the link status, the speed of the interface, and the amounts of sent and received data.

CLI Console

Click the CLI Console icon on the right side of the banner on any page.

The CLI console is a terminal window that enables you to configure the Micro-FortiGuard Server for FortiClient unit using CLI commands directly from the GUI, without making a separate SSH, or local console connection to access the CLI.

When using the CLI console, you are logged in with the same administrator account that you used to access the GUI. You can enter commands by typing them, or you can copy and paste commands into or out of the console.

Click Detach in the CLI Console toolbar to open the console in a separate window.

Note: The CLI Console requires that your web browser support JavaScript.

Alert Message Console

Displays log-based alert messages for both the Micro-FortiGuard Server for FortiClient unit itself and connected devices.

Click Edit from the widget toolbar to view the Alert Message Console Settings, where you can adjust the number of entries that are visible in the widget and the refresh interval.

To view a complete list of alert messages, click Show More from the widget toolbar. The widget will show the complete list of alerts. To clear the list, click Delete All Messages. Click Show Less to return to the regular view.
