DoS protection

The DoS Protection dimension group provides data in two DoS (denial of service) dimensions, DoS category and rule, for incoming requests.

When you select a dimension, you can see the total number of requests, a graph with the average number of requests per second at given moments within the displayed time period, a table with additional details on the dimension, and a graphical display of request distribution within the selected time period.

DoS category
The DoS Category dimension provides request data by DoS category (rate, slow POST, or DoS anomaly).
The Rule dimension provides request data by individual rules.
Note: The rule name is the current name assigned to the rule ID. Should the name change during the analysis period, the new name is the one displayed.
