FortiGate-1500D fast path architecture

The FortiGate-1500D features two NP6 processors both connected to an integrated switch fabric.

  • Eight SFP 1Gb interfaces (port1-port8), eight RJ-45 Ethernet ports (port17-24) and four SFP+ 10Gb interfaces (port33-port36) share connections to the first NP6 processor.
  • Eight SFP 1Gb interfaces (port9-port16), eight RJ-45 Ethernet ports (port25-32) and four SFP+ 10Gb interfaces (port37-port40) share connections to the second NP6 processor.

You can use the following get command to display the FortiGate-1500D NP6 configuration. The command output shows two NP6s named NP6_0 and NP6_1. The output also shows the interfaces (ports) connected to each NP6. You can also use the diagnose npu np6 port-list command to display this information.
