We're introducing a series of features to the Network Analytics dashboard that allows our Magic Transit & BYOIP customers to investigate layer 3/4 DDoS attacks and analyze traffic more easily and effectively.
Network Analytics provides near real-time visibility into network- and transport-layer traffic patterns and DDoS attacks for a customizable timeframe ranging from 30 minutes up to the last 60 days. The Network Analytics dashboard view is available to Enterprise customers that use Cloudflare Magic Transit or Bring-Your-Own-IP for Cloudflare Spectrum.
First, the new increased range of Top Ns allows users to expand their view to lower-tier variables. Users can adjust the Top Ns using a drop-down menu to either top 5, 10, or 15.
Second, the time series chart has an added tooltip to the “Allowed” legend, allowing users to include traffic triggered by Firewall Rules, flowtrackd, and L7 rules, which might not already be reflected in the Block or Rate Limited traffic for the time being.
Third, users can now view the attack distribution in a stacked bar chart that allows for easier comparison of the various attack vectors on your network.
We've also added a link to Network Analytics Knowledge Base (right next to the 'Packer summary' in the 'Packets' view) for users to learn more about the Network Analytics dashboard.
