Enabling and disabling SOC – FortiAnalyzer – FortiOS 6.2.3

Enabling and disabling SOC

The FortiAnalyzer SOC module can be disabled for performance tuning through the CLI. When disabled, the GUI will hide the SOC modules as well as the FortiView and Monitors panes, and stop background processing for this feature.

To disable SOC in the CLI:

config system global set disable-module fortiview-noc


To enable SOC in the CLI:

config system global unset disable-module end

Disabling the SOC module will cause the FortiAnalyzer to return the following error message when the FortiGate attempts to retrieve FortiAnalyzer data: Server Error: FortiView\/NOC function is disabled on FortiAnalyzer.

The FortiGate GUI displays the message: Failed to retrieve FortiView data.
