Statistics

Statistics

This topic deals with FortiWAN network surveillance system. Comprehensive statistics are collected to monitor networking status, bandwidth usage of traffic class, and dynamic IP WAN link. These data offer deep insight into the network, and help detect unexpected network failures, boosting network reliability and efficiency.

Traffic

It sorts and displays real-time traffic of traffic class over WAN link. Select traffic direction (inbound/outbound) in Traffic Type to view statistics.

The table below shows 3 sorts of statistics:

  • Maximum/Minimum bandwidth allocation and priority
  • Traffic for the last 3 seconds
  • Traffic for the last minute

The statistics are analyzed based on individual WAN connection and traffic direction. To view statistics, select from Traffic Type (Inbound/Outbound), traffic direction and WAN Link number.

Traffic Type : Traffic flow direction: inbound and outbound.
WAN Link : The number of WAN links for inspection.
Automatic Refresh : Time interval to refresh statistical table.
Traffic Class : The name of the traffic class defined on Inbound/Outbound Bandwidth Management page. Among these, unclassified classes are labeled as “Default Class”.
Min. ~ Max.(Priority) : The maximum/minimum traffic volume allowed for a specific traffic class of different priority levels.
3-Second Statistics : Displays packet numbers or traffic flow volume in Kilobyte/sec for the last 3 seconds.
1-Minute Statistics : Displays packet numbers or traffic flow volume in Kilobyte/sec for the past 60 seconds.
Top 10 : Displays the data flow for the last five seconds with corresponding IP address. Statistics can be ranked by By Source and By Destination.

Bandwidth

Unlike traffic statistics in previous section that focuses on real-time monitor of network status, statistics in BM

(Bandwidth Management) is intended for long-term analysis. For particular traffic class in a given traffic direction, Persistent Routing administrators can view bandwidth usage in bar graph during the past 60 minutes, 30 hours, 50 days, and 20 months.

Traffic Type : Traffic flow direction: inbound or outbound traffic.
Traffic Class : The name of the traffic class defined on the Inbound/Outbound Bandwidth Management page or the sum of all traffic classes.
WAN Link : The number of WAN links users to inspect.
Refresh : Click to refresh statistical charts.

Persistent Routing

It shows details with respect to persistent routing status. With persistent routing, administrators can view connections and manually reset these connections as well.

Clear All: Clear all the connections via persistent routing.

Automatic Refresh: Time interval to refresh persistent routing data.

IPv4/IPv6 IP Pair

                     IP Pair Entry    : Shows connection entries that match IP Pair Rules.
                          Source IP    : Source IP of the current persistent routing connection.
                 Destination IP    : Destination IP of the current persistent routing connection.
                                  Count    : Number of connections that the current persistent routing rule applies to.
                             Timeout    : Length of time to lapse before the current connection times out.
                                    WAN    :

IPv4/IPv6 Web Service

The WAN link through which the current persistent routing connection travels.
         Web Service Entry    : Shows connection entries that match Web Service Rules.
                          Source IP    : Source IP of the current persistent routing connection.
                                  Count    : Number of connections that the current persistent routing rule applies to.
                             Timeout    : Length of time to lapse before the current connection times out.
                                    WAN    : The WAN link through which the current persistent routing connection travels.

Note that IP Pair and Web Service show at most 50 entries respectively.
