This topic deals with how to configure logging and how to forward logs. Log records keep FortiWAN data and are capable of storing a wide variety of data concerning System, Firewall, Routing, and bandwidth management, etc. Log files can be forwarded to other servers for archiving or for notifying events via emails (see “Log Control” and “Log Notification”).
Additionally, FortiWAN offers a powerful reporting and analysis tool: Reports. The web-based analysis software that is embedded in FortiWAN or running on an independent machine enables administrators to gain insights into network traffic without manually filtering through large volumes of log data (See “Enable Reports”).
