Understand WAF metrics

Once you create an edge firewall and activate the Web Application Firewall (WAF) module, you can also use Observe products to monitor how WAF is processing requests made to your applications.

  • Real-Time Metrics: access to charts with aggregated data to explore behaviors throughout longer periods of data storage.
  • GraphQL API: access to aggragated and raw data via API with customized queries with only the data you request.
  • Real-Time Events: access to logs with raw data to perform extensive analysis.
