The Basic section provides important status information for Barracuda Firewall Insights, such as system health and used resources. Based on this information, you can allocate more resources, for example, when there is a high system load or the storage is almost full. This information also helps you to understand if new devices can be connected, if reporting can be enhanced, if log retention periods can be extended, and what steps you must take to perform such changes. You can configure role-based user access using LDAP and assign permissions for Firewall Insights and connected devices. In addition, basic configuration tasks such as network settings, password change, NTP settings, and connected devices, can be performed via the Basic child tabs (IP Configuration and Administration).
