The average number of illegal transactions per
second that were identified by the Web Application Security profile.
These transactions were detected based on the violation rating and your
Web Application Security policy's action settings. Increases in illegal
traffic over time can indicate an increase in attacks to your
applications, or it can indicate an overly-strict protection policy. The
current protection mode is indicated by Blocked or transparent
transactions. You can use the
dimension to filter violations above a certain threat level. This will
allow you to identify specific violations types that were detected.
A single illegal transaction can
include multiple violations. Therefore, comparing the number of
illegal transactions vs the number of violations may not accurately
reflect your system's status. It is recommended to primarily
evaluate the number of illegal transactions.
