Squixa's platform includes a DDOS protection feature which automatically filters excessive requests if coming from one source.
A request is an HTTP request for an asset or object from your web servers. Each web page may include around 100 requests of which many are offloaded to the Squixa platform so will not hit your origin infrastructure. There are however, some requests (such as HTML for particular pages) which will always be fetched from your origin servers and these are the focus of the rate limiting feature of the Squixa platform.
Our MTM reporting provides detail on;
- The absolute number of requests limited
- The ratio of limited requests to total requests; and
- The originating location of the limited requests.
Ordinarily, all being well, there should be very little data to view in this dashboard.
