How to run hardware test on fortigate firewall

How to run hardware test on fortigate firewall:-

For some FortiGate E-series models, you can run the hardware tests directly from the CLI.

For other models, you can download special HQIP hardware testing images from the Fortinet website.

The steps for uploading the hardware test image are the same as the ones used for uploading a firmware image.

You can run the hardware test image without saving it in the flash, so any existing firmware image won’t be overwritten.

What can be tested ?

From the CLI, run the following command to list all the hardware test items supported on the device.

# diagnose hardware test

# diagnose hardware test info

List of test cases:

bios: sysid

bios: checksum

bios: license

system: cpu-config

system: memory-config

system: storage-config

system: network-config

pci: list

usb: 2.0

usb: 3.0

button: reset

cpu: model

cpu: performance

memory: random

memory: sequence

memory: bit-flip

memory: bit-shift

memory: solid-bits

network: detect

network: loopback

npu: np6lite-ddr

asic: ssl

disk: file-data

disk: file-data2

led: sys-led

led: nic-led

Test Parameters:

Number of CPUs = 4

Minimum CPU Frequency = 1200 MHz

Minimum CPU MIPS = 800

Total System Memory = 1024 MB

Number of Network Interface Controllers (NIC) = 5

CPU/Memory Performance (MB/s): Copy = 320, Scale = 200, Add = 210, Triad = 135

Running single test case 

When running a test category, simply input the category you choose an press enter.  For example, to test System:

# diag hardware test system

========================= Fortinet Hardware Test Report =========================
SYSTEM
  CPU Configuration Check………………………………… PASS
  Memory Configuration Check……………………………… PASS
  Storage Configuration Check…………………………….. PASS
  Network Configuration Check…………………………….. PASS
========================= Fortinet Hardware Test PASSED ========================

When running a single test case, input the category followed by the test case:

# diag hardware test system cpu-config
========================= Fortinet Hardware Test Report ========================
SYSTEM
  CPU Configuration Check………………………………… PASS
========================= Fortinet Hardware Test PASSED ========================

Running the entire test suite

There will be interactive prompts throughout the test, so users are advised to remain at the console during the duration of the test. To run the test suite:

# diagnose hardware test suite all
