access_time Updated Dec 5, 2022

The Site Overview page allows you to view metrics for a site via system-generated and custom dashboards.

Before you begin

Be sure you know how to access the web interface controls.

About the Site Overview page

The Site Overview page allows you to control:

  • the specific system-generated or custom dashboard for which to display metrics
  • the time frame over which to display data

Different metrics appear depending on the dashboard you’ve selected. Hovering over any part of a graph displays a timestamp indictor that updates itself as you move your cursor.

Hovering over the OWASP Injection Attacks graph

At the bottom of each card are buttons that provide more details about the data in each graph.

Clicking on the Quick Look button displays a summary view of the data in the graph.

Clicking on the View Requests button takes you to the Requests page with data from the graph applied in the search filter. The Requests page shows individual requests that contain attack or anomaly data.

Overview dashboard

The Overview dashboard provides a high-level, system-generated overview of metrics related to your site. It includes the following cards:

  • Request volume: a graph displaying the number of requests the site received over time.
  • OWASP Injection Attacks: a graph displaying the most common OWASP Top 10 attacks the site received over time.
  • What’s new: a list of the latest Signal Sciences feature announcements.
  • Scanners: a graph displaying the number of commercial and open source scanning tools over time.
  • Traffic Source Anomalies: a graph displaying the number of requests from unusual or suspicious sources over time.
  • Events: a list of IPs that were flagged for exceeding thresholds. Click View all events to open the Events page.
  • Request Anomalies: a graph displaying the number of anomalous behaviors within request headers over time.
  • Response Anomalies: a graph displaying the number of client and server error codes over time.
  • Suspicious IPs: a list of IPs that are approaching thresholds. Once the threshold is met or exceeded, the IP address will be flagged and added to the Events list. If the agent mode is set to blocking, then all malicious requests from flagged IPs are blocked (without blocking legitimate traffic).
  • Authentication: a graph displaying the number of attempts to log in to application endpoints over time.
  • Top Attacks: a list of the top URLs containing attack signals.

API Protection dashboard

The API Protection dashboard provides system-generated data about API protection signals. It includes the following cards:

  • Enumeration: a graph displaying the number of attempts to access enumerated resources over time.
  • Request anomalies: a graph displaying the number of anomalous behaviors within request headers over time.
  • Injection attacks: a graph displaying the number of OWASP attacks associated with API abuse over time.
  • Serialization anomalies: a graph displaying the number of request errors over time. The errors may indicate autonomous clients.
  • Request violations: a graph displaying the number of requests violating common controls over time.
  • Traffic source anomalies: a graph displaying the number of requests from unusual or suspicious sources over time.

  • Login: a graph displaying the number of attempts to log in to application endpoints over time.
  • Password reset: a graph displaying the number of attempts to reset passwords over time.
