Use the Dashboard

The Dashboard tab widgets show general firewall information, such as the software version, the operational status of each interface, resource utilization, and up to 10 of the most recent entries in the threat, configuration, and system logs. All of the available widgets are displayed by default, but each administrator can remove and add individual widgets, as needed. Click the refresh icon refresh_icon.png to update the dashboard or an individual widget. To change the automatic refresh interval, select an interval from the drop-down (1 min, 2 mins, 5 mins, or Manual). To add a widget to the dashboard, click the widget drop-down, select a category and then the widget name. To delete a widget, click delete_icon.png in the title bar. The following table describes the dashboard widgets.
