API Protection Profile dashboard charts

The API Protection Profile Dashboard displays several charts that can be used for troubleshooting API servers associated with one API protection profile.
API Status
Review overall total traffic statistics to see what percentage of problems are occurring at the API protection proxy and which ones occur at the API server.
Proxy Rejections and Server Errors Analysis
Here you can see the rejections and errors classified into more specific reasons. For example, the number of API server errors are classified as having returned 4xx or 5xx HTTP status codes, or connection failures. Access rejections are grouped by what caused the problem including invalid signatures, expired tokens, or connection failures.
API Response Time
Response time is how long it takes from the time the BIG-IP system receives an API request, sends it to the API server, where it is processed and sent back to the BIG-IP system, and the last packet of the response is returned to the client. The bar chart breaks down how the time is being spent. Is it processing on the API server, processing the API request, or processing the API response?
Traffic Distribution
Breaks down the traffic by client type, client operating system, and authentication method. If the IP Reputation Database is licensed, you see information on IP addresses stopped for reasons specified in the database. For example, Spam Sources, Windows Exploits, Web Attacks, DoS attacks, and so on.
Traffic by Geolocation
Shows a map of the world shaded darkest in areas where most of the traffic is coming from.
Traffic per [All Servers, IP address of specific endpoint]
Shows the numbers of successful and failed connections and responses for all API servers or for a specific endpoint IP address.
Security Events
Displays Advanced WAF security events including the number of web application attacks, violating source IP addresses, and malicious transactions. You can also display the events by attack type, violating IP address, violations, and violation rating.
Traffic by Endpoints
Shows the endpoints (such as GET, PUT, POST or DELETE methods) and number of requests for each one.
Traffic by [User ID, User Group ID, Client App ID, Service Tier, Organization ID]
Displays the number of requests by the selected category.
