FortiWAN Outclass Report

Outclass

This report shows the statistics of each outbound class as defined in FortiWAN’s Bandwidth Management function (See “Bandwidth Management”). Each class is a classification (by service, by IP address and etc.) of outgoing traffic passed through FortiWAN.

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

  • Pie Chart: Pie chart of traffic statistics is generated based on Outbound Classes of FortiWAN’s Bandwidth Management.
  • Bar Chart: Bar chart statistics show the actual data volume used by the top 10 Outbound Classes.

Statistics Table:

  • List the Outbound Class the most traffic being classified into. l Out Class: The Outbound Classes defined in FortiWAN. l Inbound Bytes: The volume of inbound traffic of the Outbound Classes. l Outbound Bytes: The volume of outbound traffic of the Outbound Classes. l Total Bytes: The volume of total traffic of the Outbound Classes (Inbound Bytes + Outbound Bytes).
  • Note: Select “Inbound Bytes”, “Outbound Bytes” or “Total Bytes” as primary sorting by clicking on the column title. A “▲” is shown aside the column header while the column is selected as primary sorting, e.g. Inbound Bytes ▲.
  • % Total Bytes: The volume of total traffic of the Outbound Classes in %. l % Inbound Bytes: The volume of inbound traffic of the Outbound Classes in %. l % Outbound Bytes: The volume of outbound traffic of the Outbound Classes in %.
  • Only one of the three statistics data (% Inbound Bytes, % Outbound Bytes, or % Total Bytes) will be displayed in the statistics table depending on the primary sort column.
  • This page and this table describe total traffic volume, not traffic rate. Data transferred are measured in KBytes, MBytes or GBytes over the period of time selected.
  • Drill in (See “Drill In”):
  • Clicking the magnifier icon located under the “Drill in” column in the statistics table allows you to perform an additional ‘drill-down’ analysis on traffic for the selected policy Out Class, shown by In Class, WAN, Service, Internal IP, External IP, Internal Group, External Group and Traffic Rate (Trend) via the selected policy Out Class:
  • In Class – In Classes that are associated with this Out Class. l WAN – WAN links that are associated with this Out Class. l Service – Services (L3-L7) that are associated with this Out Class. l Internal IP – Any monitored internal IP addresses that are associated with this Out Class. l External IP – Any monitored external IP addresses that are associated with this Out Class.
  • Internal Group – Any monitored internal IP group (set up under the Settings menu) that the internal IP addresses are associated with this Out Class.
  • External Group – Any monitored external IP group (set up under the Settings menu) that the external IP addresses are associated with this Out Class. l Traffic Rate: bandwidth distribution generated by this Out Class by the date range defined.
