Zabbix Templates for Fortinet FortiGate devices


This template goal is to contain all available SNMP information provided by a Fortinet FortiGate device.

Template Version

  • v2.1.0

Validated Versions

  • Zabbix 5.2
  • FortiOS 6.2 / 6.4 / 7.0


  • Download the template
  • Import the template and associate them to your devices
  • Change the Device Inventory from Disabled (Zabbix default) to Automatic
  • There's no need to import the Fortinet MIBs on Zabbix Server, the template is using numeric OIDs

Template Details

Zabbix Configuration

You can tune the following macros, which are used by some triggers:

  • {$CPU.UTIL.CRIT} = 80
  • {$MEMORY.UTIL.MAX} = 80
  • {$IF_ID1} = 1; IF ID where Egress Shaping is configured
  • {$IF_IN_ID1} = 2; IF ID where Ingress Shaping is configured

Templates Included

The following templates were included into this one (instead of linked) due to several users having issues during import process when the default templates are not present on their Zabbix install. All data and discovery was simply copied from them into this template.

  • Template Module EtherLike-MIB
  • Template Module Generic
  • Template Module Interfaces

Discovery Rules

  • CPU Cores
