Analytics

Bot Report

Use the Bot Report to monitor bot traffic for the past 24 hours.

To access the Bot Report, go to Firewall > Bots. If you see a double-digit percentage of automated traffic, you may want to upgrade to Bot Management to save money on origin costs and protect your domain from large-scale attacks.

Bot report traffic distribution

Firewall events

You can see bot-related actions by going to Firewall > Overview. Any requests challenged by this product will be labeled Super Bot Fight Mode in the Service field. This allows you to observe, analyze, and follow trends in your bot traffic over time.

Ruleset Engine

Super Bot Fight Mode runs during the http_request_firewall_managed phase of the Ruleset Engine.
