A session is the dialogue between two or more communicating devices, which includes all messages that pass between the devices. For example, when a user browses to a website on the Internet, a session is created for all communication between the user’s computer and the web server that hosts the website.
Sessions are tracked by a FortiGate unit to create logs about the network traffic.
Bruce has been working with computers, and related technology, since before the World Wide Web was a thing. He has worked in system and network administration. He has even dabbled in technical support. He has made the switch to technical writing as part of his deep, dark and dastardly plan to make the arcane machinations of IT technology more easily understood by the poor folks who use it. That, and the voices in his head told him it was good idea. Never argue with the voices in your head. People will start to stare.
