FortiGate-5001D fast path architecture

The FortiGate5001D features two NP6 processors.

  • port1, port3, fabric1 and base1 share connections to the first NP6 processor.
  • port2, port4, fabric2 and base2 share connections to the second NP6 processor.

NP6 default interface mapping

You can use the following get command to display the FortiGate-5001D 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.

NP6 interface mapping with split ports

If you use the following CLI command to split port1:

config system global

set split-port port1

end

The new split ports (port1/1 to port 1/4) are mapped to the same NP6 as the un-split port1 interface:
