FortiGate-800D fast path architecture

FortiGate800D fast path architecture

The FortiGate-800D includes one NP6 processor connected through an integrated switch fabric to all of the FortiGate-800D network interfaces. This hardware configuration supports NP6-accelerated fast path offloading for sessions between any of the FortiGate-800D interfaces.

System Bus




You can use the following get command to display the FortiGate-800D NP6 configuration. The command output shows one NP6 named NP6_0. The output also shows all of the FortiGate-800D interfaces (ports) connected to NP6_0. You can also use the diagnose npu np6 port-list command to display this information.
