FortiWAN’s Reports provides long-term and advanced data analysis by processing system logs to database. The original logs FortiWAN generates contains raw data which is yet to be processed, and Reports can organize and analyze these data into readable statistics.
Every FortiWAN unit embeds the Reports system (See “Reports”), or the Reports could be also a stand-alone system running on a computer. Here is the settings to specify the ways of log push for Reports servers.
Enable Reports DB : Enable the embedded Reports (See “Reports”). Logs will be processed directly to the database stored in the built-in hard disk. Analysis and statistics are displayed via Web UI.
The Reports displays no data without enabling this.
Enable Reports UDP : Enable it to push logs to specified stand-alone Reports server.
Recipient IP Address : Specify location of the stand-alone Reports server that logs are pushed to. This field is available only if Enable Reports UDP is checked.
The stand-alone Reports displays no data without enabling this.
A stand-alone Reports and the embedded Reports can run at the same time, but both servers use the same logs.
Select the log type for FortiWAN to send to Reports.
l Firewall l Virtual Server l Bandwidth Usage l Connection Limit l Multihoming l Tunnel Routing
Selected logs here will be pushed to embedded Reports and stand-alone Reports, if any or both of them are enabled.
