Logging and Reporting : Configuring high speed logging
Configuring high speed logging
The high speed log feature is intended for deployments that require a high volume of logging activity. The logs are sent in binary format so they can be sent at a high speed. If you want to use high speed logging, contact Fortinet to obtain a utility for handling the binary format.
The feature supports traffic logs. Event logs and security logs are not supported.
Before you begin:
