Fortinet FortiManager Monitoring

Last updated on 17 March, 2023


LogicMonitor offers out-of-the-box monitoring for the Fortinet FortiManager device. Our monitoring suite uses SNMP to query FortiManager for a variety of health and performance metrics. ​

Setup Requirements

Add Resource Into Monitoring

Add your FortiManager host into monitoring. For more information on adding resources into monitoring, see Adding Devices.

Enable SNMP

SNMP must be configured on the FortiManager host in order for the DataSources to apply.

SNMP Credentials

LogicMonitor must provide the appropriate credentials in order to successfully access the FortiManager device via SNMP. For instructions on how to set the appropriate credentials as properties on the resource within LogicMonitor, see Defining Authentication Credentials.

Import LogicModules

From the LogicMonitor repository, import all Fortinet FortiManager LogicModules, which are listed in the LogicModules in Package section of this support article. If these LogicModules are already present, ensure you have the most recent versions.

Once the LogicModules are imported (assuming all previous setup requirements have been met), the suite of FortiManager DataSources will automatically begin collecting data.
