Fortigate – Restart SSL VPN Process
August 26, 2014

If the Mem goes to high, and the device drops to conserv mode. The SSL VPN may stop working correctly, or at all.
A quick reboot of the firewall will fix this issue, but restarting the VPN process will also fix it (given the mem dropped). You can also restart any process with these commands.
To restart the process:
get system performance top – to get the process ID (PID) of the SSL VPN
Looks like the PID of sslvpnd – 81
Next, we will kill the process with the kill command and use the level 11 – which restarts the process.
the command: dia sys kill <level> <PID>
dia sys kill 11 81
If you do the get sys per top command again, you will notice that the sslvpnd process now has a different PID.
