The Traffic Overview report shows the total request volume for a selected period, segmented by category. Each request is identified as either a human, a good bot (e.g., search engines, such as Google, Bing, and Yahoo!—as well as social media such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter), or a bad bot you can manually add to your whitelist.

Reviewing the Traffic Overview Report
Use the top date range menu to adjust and isolate the data for a specific period of time. You can also toggle the Scale switch to show page requests in either a linear or logarithmic format.
The Traffic Overview report includes:
- Human, Good Bot, & Bad Bot Page Requests – Visual breakdown of all bot requests related to your site, including human, good bot, and bad bot.
- How we protected you – The volume of bad bot requests, segmented by threat response.
- What we protected you from – The volume of violations detected from the total number of bad bot requests.
NOTE: The total numbers represented in the second and third breakdowns typically do not match. In most cases, this is because a request from a bad bot fails multiple threat factors.
