Identifying additional application security and traffic parameters

When you are troubleshooting the security status of an application, additional data can help you isolate details that characterize potential, or ongoing, vulnerabilities. On the Application screen, the Enhanced Analytics option provides you with the ability to collect more information about the Web Application Security policy for your application's BIG-IP host device. When this feature is enabled, the enhanced data displays additional dimension objects and data for the security dimensions found in the Analytics area.
In addition to displaying enhanced traffic data, you can select additional HTTP traffic data to view details about the application's traffic during the time of an attack (for example, Client IPs, Geolocations, or URLs).
The Enhanced Analytics option does not impact your BIG-IQ system performance. By default,you can enable up to 20 applications simultaneously in Enhanced Analytics mode.
System administrators can adjust the maximum number of applications by modifying the
maxNumberOfApps
parameter value in the
/var/config/rest/config/restjavad.properties.json
file.
