Fortianalyzer

We have a fortianalyzer and it is not seeing any logs when we go to Logs and Archive but according to the device statistics from the dashboard, it shows that the fortianalyzer is collecting logs just fine.  Testing connectivity from the Fortigate appliance works too to the analyzer.  It is just when we try to generate reports or try to look at the logs using the log and archive option, it doesn't show any updated logs.  It just shows logs from several months ago.

Does anyone have any idea on what the issue might be related to this?

thanks,
paula

actually for fortianalyzer, the first place to check is the admin guide on the troubleshooting section (pg294). E.g.
http://docs.fortinet.com/fa/fortianalyzer-admin-40-mr3.pdf

There are couple of "closely related" issues e.g.
"No logs received with encryption enabled between a FortiGate unit and a FortiAnalyzer unit" and "HA log issue"

also you may want to check out below section:
- FortiAnalyzer - System Registration
- FortiAnalyzer Funkiness

also just in case you want to verify the connectivity testing and the various means to do a quick connect check with test log

http://docs.fortinet.com/cb/html/index.html#page/FOS_Cookbook/Log_Report/cb_log_backup%20solution.html

Before configuring the FortiGate unit, ensure both the FortiGate unit and the FortiAnalyzer unit have the same firmware version and maintenance release. If both do not have the same firmware version and maintenance release, issues may arise, such as being unable to send logs to the FortiAnalyzer unit.

To test the connection other than using the web-based manager, in the CLI use diag log test command. This command sends logs to the FortiAnalyzer unit. To verify the number of logs sent, failed, dropped or buffered to the FortiAnalyzer unit, use the diag fortianalyzer-log mgstats show command. Go to the FortiAnalyzer unit, and under Log & Archive, view the logs that you just sent from your FortiGate device.

If you are not seeing any logs on the FortiAnalyzer unit, verify that the device has been included in the Devices menu list.
