Attack Reports


 

The Attack Reports section includes reports that show details of attacks that have been identified by the firewall. These reports help in identifying the top attackers, the top targets for the attacks and other details like protocol used, the priority of the attack and the status of the attack.

 

On the top right side of the Report screen, there will be three combo boxes. They are:

  • Top 5
  • Filter by
  • Export as

Top 5

 

The Top 5 combo box lets you choose the level of detail in the reports. By default, the top five values are shown. To show more than 15 values, the report uses only tables. There is an option to display the Graph only.

  • Top 5 (graph & table)
  • Top 10 (graph & table)
  • Top 15 (table only)
  • Top 20 (table only)
  • Top 25 (table only)
  • Graph only

Below each graph click the Hide Table link to hide the table. Click the Show Table link to see the table again.
