Fortinet FortiADC in Grafana

Pre Install

Make sure you have installed InfluxDB as the time-series database Telegraf as collector first.
Optional you can also include the FortiADC logs when they are in elasticsearch. I use the Greylog sollution for this.

Quick Start

Get the latest files, at my GitHub page

  • Enable SNMP on your FortiADC
  • Put fortiadc.conf in your /etc/telegraf/telegraf.d directory
  • Edit the community string as appropriate
  • Edit the SNMP verion as appropriate
  • Edit the 'agents' list to include all of your monitored FortiADC loadbalancers
  • Put the files in the mibs dir /usr/share/snmp/mibs
  • Import the Grafana dashboard

After you setup all, you should have a dashboard like this.
