Troubleshooting FortiView


No logging data is displayed

In order for information to appear in the FortiView consoles, disk logging must be selected for the FortiGate unit. To select disk logging, go to Log & Report > Log Settings.

Disk logging is disabled by default for some FortiGate units. To enable disk logging, enter the following command in the CLI:

config log disk setting set status enable



Only certain FortiGate models support Disk Logging — refer to the FortiView Feature Support – Platform Matrix on page 1149 for more information.
