FortiGate-3000D fast path architecture

FortiGate3000D fast path architecture

The FortiGate-3000D features 16 front panel SFP+ 10Gb interfaces connected to two NP6 processors through an

Integrated Switch Fabirc (ISF). The FortiGate-3000D has the following fastpath architecture:

l  8 SFP+ 10Gb interfaces, port1 through port8 share connections to the first NP6 processor (np6_0).

l  8 SFP+ 10Gb interfaces, port9 through port16 share connections to the second NP6 processor (np6_1).

You can use the following get command to display the FortiGate-3000D NP6 configuration. The command output shows two NP6s named NP6_0 and NP6_1 and the interfaces (ports) connected to each NP6. You can also use the diagnose npu np6 port-list command to display this information.
