Interface Bandwidth Widget

hi,

i would like to constantly monitor our WAN utilization in a certain VDOM.

i already added a widget under dashboard > network > interface (added WAN subif).

my question are:

1.is this widget permanent? or is it auto removed after my login session?

2.can other admin see/view the widget i created? or is this view only exclusive to my profile?

3.i can only see 1 hour, 24 hour and 1 week view option? is this fix or can i adjust this view to 12 hours or 30 days/1 month, 12 months?

Thanks,
John

Hi johnlloyd_13,

 

You can check and monitor the bandwidth utilization through dashboard > network > interface (added WAN subif)

 

> When you add the widget, it will be visible under the Dashboard and will remain there permanently rather than being automatically removed after the login session.

 

> Can other admin see/view the widget i created? = No, it will not be visible to other admin

 

> You can only check the bandwidth only for durations of 1 hour, 24 hours, and 1 week.

 

> You can also monitor the usage of bandwidth per source. Please refer to the document below for more information:

I hope it will help you.

Hi

If you want a X months graph then it should be possible with FortiAnalyzer or with NetFlow.
