In order for information to appear in the FortiView dashboards in FortiGate, disk logging must be selected for the FortiGate unit. Select the FortiView tab and select the ADOM from the dropdown list.

When rebuilding the SQL database, FortiView will not be available until after the rebuild is completed. Select the Show Progress link in the message to view the status of the SQL rebuild.
