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.
