> Chapter 24 - Security Fabric > Overview > FortiView


FortiView can be used to view a security fabric's topology. Two different visualizations are available: Physical Topology and Logical Topology.

Both visualizations can be filtered to show four main views: device traffic, device count, device type, or no devices. Finally, like other FortiView pages, the topology can be filtered by time.

Physical Topology

Physical Topology shows the devices in the security fabric and which devices are connected. You can select whether or not to view access layer devices in this topology.


Logical Topology

Logical Topology displays information about network interface (logical or physical) and which interfaces are used to connect devices in the fabric.
