Magic WAN customers can view their real-time and historical network data in Network Analytics. Customers can see their network data in a time series that shows Magic WAN traffic (in packets or bytes) over time, and can filter the time series data by different types of packet characteristics.

To start using Network Analytics:

  1. Log in to the Cloudflare dashboard and select your account.
  2. Select Analytics & Logs > Network Analytics.
  3. You will have access to an overview of your Magic WAN network traffic data.

Refer to Network Analytics to learn more.

  • Source and destination IP address
  • Source and destination IP prefix
  • Source and destination port
  • Magic Tunnel (IPsec or GRE)

  • Cloudflare mitigation system applied
  • TTL
  • TCP Flags
