System Resources widget

The System Resources widget displays the usage status of the CPUs, memory, and hard disk. You can view system resource information in real-time or historical format, as well as average or individual CPU usage.

These warnings are also shown in the notification list (see GUI overview on page 12). Clicking on a warning opens the FortiAnalyzerVM Install Guide.

To toggle between real-time and historical data, click Edit in the widget toolbar, select Historical or Real-time, edit the other settings as required, then click OK.
