High Memory Usage per Chassis and Blade for Fortinet




Alert when Memory usage is high

Remediation Steps

Review the load on this thread to see if the memory utilization is valid.

How does this work?

Indeni uses the built-in Fortinet "get system performance status" command to retrieve the device memory utilization.

Why is this important?

If the firewall memory becomes fully utilized, performance may be impacted and traffic may be dropped, and in extreme cases the firewall could crash. It is critical to monitor the memory usage and handle the issue prior to resource exhaustion.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

An administrator could login and manually run the command via CLI, check the system resources widget via the GUI, enable SNMP, configure a syslog server for a log message every 5 minutes containing the utilization, or use Fortinet FortiAnalyzer.
