Question #: 19
Topic #: 1
[All NSE8_812 Questions]

Review the following FortiGate-6000 configuration excerpt:

Based on the configuration, which statement is correct regarding SNAT source port partitioning behavior?

Show Suggested Answer Hide Answer
Suggested Answer: A

The configuration excerpt shows that the SNAT source port partitioning behavior is set to dynamic. This means that the FortiGate will dynamically distribute SNAT source ports to operating FPCs or FPMs. This ensures that active sessions are not interrupted if an FPC or FPM goes down.

The other options are incorrect. Option B is incorrect because the default SNAT configuration is static. Option C is incorrect because the configuration excerpt does not specify that SNAT source ports are statically distributed. Option D is incorrect because the SNAT source ports are not evenly distributed across chassis slots.

Here are some additional details about SNAT source port partitioning behavior:

SNAT source port partitioning behavior can be set todynamicorstatic.

The default SNAT configuration isstatic.

Dynamic SNAT source port partitioning ensures that active sessions are not interrupted if an FPC or FPM goes down.

Static SNAT source port partitioning can improve performance by reducing the number of SNAT lookups.

That's a good point, but I still think it's A) It dynamically distributes SNAT source ports to operating FPCs or FPMs.

I'm leaning towards option B) It is the default SNAT configuration and preserves active sessions when an FPC or FPM goes down.

I'm not sure, but I think I agree with Brittni. It makes sense that it would dynamically distribute SNAT source ports.

Haha, static distribution, eh? That's like trying to herd cats. I bet the developers had a field day with that one.

Haha, this is like a game of 'Guess the Fortigate Feature'. I'm going to take a wild guess and say option B, but I really have no idea how confident I am in that answer.

Personally, I'm a bit confused by the options. They all seem plausible, but I'm not sure which one is the most accurate description of the behavior based on the given configuration.

You know, I'm leaning towards option C. The configuration seems to suggest a static distribution of SNAT source ports to the operating FPCs or FPMs.

I think option C makes sense too. It does seem like a static distribution.

You're right, this is not a straightforward question. I'm leaning towards option C, 'It statically distributes SNAT source ports to operating FPCs or FPMs', but I'm not 100% sure about the rationale behind that.

Hold on, I'm not so sure about that. The question specifically asks about the SNAT source port partitioning behavior, and option B doesn't quite address that.

Hmm, this question seems a bit tricky. The configuration excerpt doesn't provide much detail, so we'd need to have a good understanding of how SNAT source port partitioning works on the FortiGate-6000.

Hmm, let me take a closer look at the configuration excerpt. I think option B might be the right answer, since it mentions preserving active sessions when an FPC or FPM goes down.
