How to check Bandwidth Usage of Fortiguard?

Hi everyone, I recently accessed our firewall on a midnight without any users and checked that our bandwidth usage is around 7mbps as seen on the dashboard's interface bandwidth monitor. But when I checked it in Fortiview, there is no device logged consuming that bandwidth. I tried to disable policies that are using that interface but the traffic is still being used.

 

I'm thinking could it be fortiguard? But should it consume that much bandwidth?

 

Im using fortigate 60E, Firmware 6.2.3 build1066.

 

Thank you in advance.

Hi,

 

- Usually we will not see this in Fortiview as there wont be any traffic log for the communication to Fortiguard.

- Did you check the session list in the firewall during the specific time using the command "diagnose sys session list"? This can help you to check if there are any active sessions in the firewall. 

 

Regards,

Shiva
