Monitoring traffic load
Heavy traffic loads can cause sustained high CPU or RAM usage. If this is unusual, no action may be required, unless you are being subject to a DoS attack. Sustained heavy traffic load may indicate that you need a more powerful model of FortiADC.
In the FortiADC appliance's web UI, you can view traffic load two ways:
Monitor current HTTP traffic on the dashboard. Go to System > Status > Dashboard and examine the graphs in the Virtual Server Summary widget.
Examine traffic history in the traffic log. Go to Logs&Report > Log Access > Traffic.
