FortiGate Next Generation Firewall utilizes purpose-built security processors and threat intelligence security services from FortiGuard labs to deliver top-rated protection and high performance, including encrypted traffic.
Description This article shows how to perform the WAD source affinity exempt for specific source address. Solution
When wad-source-affinity is enabled, the WAD traffic dispatcher allows incoming traffic to be directly distributed among the WAD workers.
# config system global
set wad-source-affinity enable
When users are behind NAT device then the traffic from the NATed source IP would be forwarded to only one WAD worker and can load that WAD worker.
This can also happen when there are high number of sessions received from few sources.
It is also possible to use the below commands to exempt these source addresses from proxy affinity, which allows traffic from the same source and different server to be distributed to WAD workers in a round-robin configuration.
The Fortinet Security Fabric brings together the concepts of convergence and consolidation to provide comprehensive cybersecurity protection for all users, devices, and applications and across all network edges.
