terminal monitor in FG

hi,

i would like to remotely monitor ports being up/down after a tech install.

is there a 'terminal monitor' cisco command equivalent in FG?

the output of 'get hardware nic <interface> is too long.

i just need to confirm FG ports goes up/down while i shutdown switch ports.

Thanks,
John

Logging output is typically used for t-shoot, since you aren't always doing t-shoot when SSHed into a device you won't always want this turned on IMO

Hello @johnlloyd_13 ,

 

I think the best way to track interface activity is to view the system logs. You should just click one button for the refresh logs. Also if you use FortiAnalyzer you can review the log like a Cisco terminal monitor in real time mode.

If you have found a solution, please like and accept it to make it easily accessible to others.

Hi @johnlloyd_13,

 

I think that is the right command to use. If it is too long for you, you can use 'grep' command. For example: 

# diag hardware deviceinfo nic port2 | grep Link

hi,

thanks for your all your replies! think i'll just stick to the 'get hardware nic <interface>' and pipe/grep the output.

Thanks,
John
