Real-time data

By default, the Network Traffic Dashboard displays real-time data.

Data resolution is 3 seconds.

Hover over the graph to focus in on a specific point in time. In this example, you can see that 16.87% of the total traffic was coming in from London.

At the top of the dashboard, select an option, or choose a custom time period.

The dashboard displays the maximum values reached during the selected time period.

In the graphs, you can zoom in to a maximum data resolution of 15 seconds to analyze short attacks.

To zoom in, click and drag an area of the graph.

Hover over a point in the graph for more details. In this example, the graph is now showing a resolution of 15 minutes per point.

Grab another area of the graph to zoom in again for a closer look. Here, the maximum resolution of 15 seconds is displayed.
