The Logs section of the service menu offers comprehensive monitoring capabilities, providing insights into all application transactions for delivery and security in nearly real-time.

Using this information, you can review each request that was made to your service, the IP address it was made from, when it was made, the request parameters, and other details.

All the events happening are categorized into 4 tabs - Delivery, WAF (Web Application Firewall), Rate Limiting, and Bot Management:

Each of these categories provides information on specific occurrences:

  • Delivery events encompass all requests received by your application and the outcomes of their processing;

  • WAF events records appear when the Web Application Firewall is triggered due to a breach of a security rule;

  • Rate Limiting events are recorded when access to the application is blocked for a particular user or group of them to prevent malicious or abusive requests that could exhaust system resources;

  • Bot Management tab displays events related to detecting and blocking bots that visit your application (excluding legitimate bots such as those from Facebook, LinkedIn, and GoogleBot).

Every tab consists of two main components:

  • Graphical representation of the number of relevant events occurring during equal time intervals, displayed in the form of columns:

Hovering over a particular column reveals the number of events that happened within this time interval, while clicking on it will provide the detailed distribution of comprised events across the time, offering up to 10 seconds of granularity (this feature is explained more thoroughly in the Graph Scaling guide).

Requests within the Delivery tab columns are grouped based on the result of their processing, being distinguished by different colors corresponding to the status codes defined in the color legend beneath the graph. Herewith, clicking on the color squares in this legend allows you to turn on/off the display of the associated events.

For the WAF, Rate Limiting, and Bot Management graphs, only the overall number of events within the respective time interval is shown.

  • The Total Events section with the details on the events that occurred, presented in the form of the visualization chosen above the graph: either List, Timeseries, or Pie Chart:

Further information on this section is available in the Total Events Section document.
