The Destinations console provides information about the destination IP addresses of traffic on your FortiGate unit, as well as the application used. You can drill down the displayed information, and also select the device and time period, and apply search filters.

This console can be filtered by Country, Destination Interface, Destination IP, Policy, Result, and Source Interface. For more on filters, see Filtering options.

Scenario: Monitoring destination data

The Destinations console can be used to access detailed information on user destination-accessing through the use of the console's drilldown functionality. In this scenario, the console is used to find out more about a particular user's Facebook usage patterns over a 24-hour period:

  1. Go to FortiView > Destinations.
  2. Select 1 hour from the Time Display options at the top right corner of the console.
  3. The easiest way to locate most destinations is to scan the Applications column for the name of the application. Once the session containing Facebook has been located, double-click it to access the Destination summary window.
  4. Locate Facebook in the Applications column and double-click it to view the Facebook drilldown page. From here, detailed information regarding the user's Facebook session can be accessed.
note icon Only FortiGate models 100D and above support the 24 hour historical data.
