What platforms does SigSci support for the module/agent?

Does SigSci provide an API?

What are the default timeouts for the Signal Sciences modules?

When the module receives a request, it sends it to the agent for processing. The module then waits for a decision from the agent (whether or not to block) for a set amount of time before defaulting to allowing the request through. The default timeouts vary by module type and are listed below:

Module Timeout
Windows IIS 200ms
.NET 200ms
.NET Core 200ms
All other modules 100ms

What does it mean for a feature to be listed as “experimental”?

Features listed as “experimental” are not fully developed and are subject to change. Use caution when building automated processes involving these features as their functionality may change as they progress.
