Interface History Custom Report

As we all know, the status dashboard has an "Interface History" widget. I love this widget however it resets when the device is power cycled.

 

How would I go about creating a FortiAnalyzer report that would show the same data in the same manner (hour, day week) bandwidth in and out (MBps) See attached file for how it looks in the GUI. 

The FAZ is running 5.0.x code 

 

I know there is a dataset I need to make etc but I have no idea how to do that (databases and sql are not strong points of mine)interface_history.gif

Here the comments from Fortinet TAC:

 

The measurement of the bandwidth of an interface is a metric obtained from the FortiGate memory, so a more related device to make this measurement is an SNMP server.

 

The FAZ reports will generate bandwidth measurements depending on the host, application or user element, for example measuring how much bandwidth a certain device consumes in a day.

We are running 6.4.6 on FAZ and still NOT finding a report for this purpose!

 

The exact needed graph is on the dashboard when we login to the firewall.... but can't be generated in the analyzer?!

 

Since this discussion has been open for 6 years now with no one finding a solution, at this point I am only praying they add this feature soon.

Hello, I want to say that today, March 9, 2022, I still need that consumption report in Mbps, soon a new FortiAnalyzer will be installed in the company and it seems incredible to me that we do not have that functionality. I need the Throughput graph between a source and a destination to know the impact on a data channel. I saw somewhere that the FortiManager does show those graphs for a Traffic Shaping policy but again the Kbps values are rare... Someone from Fortinet tell us if there is progress on this?
