Description
The per-ip bandwidth is not available by default on FortiOS 5.0. The following steps explain how to add the per-ip bandwidth widget.

Scope
FortiOS 5.0

Solution
Login to the Fortigate using the SSH/CLI and execute the following commands:

config system admin
edit [admin_name]
config dashboard-tabs
edit 0
set name "Bandwidth"
set columns 1
end
show    ----------{ Get the ID of the dashboard-tab called "Bandwidth". It will start with edit [ID].

Example:

edit 5
set columns 1
set name "Bandwidth"
next

Here the ID is 5.

config dashboard
edit 0
set widget-type per-ip-usage
set tab-id [ID]   ------{ The ID would be the value that was returned on the show command.
set column 1
set refresh-interval 60
end

Example:

edit 10
set widget-type per-ip-usage
set tab-id 5
set column 1
set refresh-interval 60
end
end
This will result in creating a dashboard-tab called "Bandwidth" showing the top 20 per ip bandwidth usage which will refresh every 60 seconds.
