Chapter 10 – FortiView

WHOIS Lookup anchor for public IPv4 addresses

Reverse IP lookup is now possible in FortiOS 5.4. A WHOIS lookup icon is available when you mouse over a public IP address in a FortiView log. If you left-click on the lookup icon, a new tab is opened in your browser for www.networksolutions.com, and a lookup is performed on the selected IP address (this option persists after drilling down one level in FortiView).

 

FortiGuard Cloud App DB identification

FortiView now recognizes FortiGuard Cloud Application database traffic, which is mainly monitored and validated by FortiFlow, an internal application that identifies cloud applications based on IP, Port, and Protocol. Administrators can potentially use this information for WAN Link Load Balancing, for example.

 

7day time display

In FortiOS 5.4, the following FortiGate models now support 7-day time display:

  • FortiGate 1000D
  • FortiGate 1500D
  • FortiGate 3700DX
  • FortiGate 3700D

 

The option for 7-day time display, however, can only be configured in the CLI using the following command:

config log setting

set fortiview-weekly-data {enable|disable}

end
