FortiWAN Bandwidth Report


The Bandwidth report shows the traffic distribution by the date range defined. Your FortiWAN model is rated by its data throughput (and number of simultaneous connections). This report will help you determine if you are using the correct FortiWAN model and bandwidth capability for the data volumes at our location.

Create a report for a specific day or over a range of dates (See “Create a Report”).

Export reports and send reports through email (See “Export and Email”).

Bandwidth Distribution:

  • X axis: Time between 00:00 to 23:59 (of a selected date). Days from start to end if Date Range specified (max 90 days) .

  • Clicking on Both, In or Out buttons at the right upper corner of the graph allows you to see bandwidth distribution in different directions:
  • Both: Displays both inbound and outbound bandwidth distribution. l In: Displays only inbound bandwidth distribution. l Out: Displays only outbound bandwidth distribution. l Moving the mouse over the graph will display time, date and corresponding traffic distribution (as shown below):

Statistics Table:

  • Lists the average inbound and outbound traffic rate distributed by the date range defined. This is the numerical presentation of the same information in the Bandwidth Distribution Charts.
