Hi Heasley and folks,

Sept 2017 i sent a note in with some proposed tweaks to a Fortigate. to
filter out some additional chattiness, see:


A few people chimed in seeming to be OK with the propsed changes, which are
to filter these things:

next if (/^\s*IPS-ETDB: .*/);
next if (/^\s*APP-DB: .*/);
next if (/^\s*IPS Malicious URL Database: .*/);
next if (/^\s*Botnet DB: .*/);

Mentioning this as 3.8 came out and i didn't notice any of these included.

We have an additional fortigate tweak we make every time we update too,
which to change from 'show full-configuration' to just 'show' in
@commandtable. 'full-configuration' shows default config, just like the
cisco 'full' command. It's really not necessary IMO.
