About Response Analytics

A Response Analytics item inspects a web response page for malicious embedded contents. Response Analytics must be preceded by a Category Lookup item because it obtains a web response page.
Response Analytics works only on a BIG-IP® system with an SWG subscription.
Response Analytics provides these elements and options.
Max Buffer Size
Specifies the maximum amount of response data (in bytes) to collect before sending it for content scanning. The system sends the content for analysis when the buffer reaches this size or when the buffer contains all of the response content. Otherwise, the system retains the response data in the buffer.
Max Buffer Time
Specifies the maximum amount of time (in seconds) for buffering and analyzing response data. If the time elapses at any point in this process, the agent sets the
perflow.response_analytics.failure
variable to 1 (which indicates an ANTserver failure) and discards the response data.
Reset on Failure
When enabled, specifies that SWG send a TCP reset to the client in the event of an ANTserver failure. If disabled and an ANTserver failure occurs, SWG logs all perflow variables and provides the SWG block page to the client.
Exclude Types
Specifies one entry for each type of content to be excluded from content analysis. Images, the
All-Images
type, do not get analyzed.
