Reviewing the Traffic Overview Dashboard
Use the top date range menu to adjust and isolate the data for a specific period of time.
By default, each dashboard displays data in UTC time. Change the time zone using the Time Zone dropdown selector.
The Traffic Overview tile shows the total request volume for a selected period, segmented by category. Each request is identified as either a human, a bad bot, a good bot (search engines, such as Google, Bing, and Yahoo!, as well as social media, such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter), or a bad bot you have added to your whitelist.
Traffic by Category (%)
Similar to the Traffic Overview tile, the Traffic by Category (%) tile shows a percentage breakdown of the total request volume for a selected period, segmented by category. Each request is identified as either a human, a bad bot, a good bot (search engines, such as Google, Bing, and Yahoo!, as well as social media, such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter), or a bad bot you have added to your whitelist.
Threat Traffic Overview
The Threat Traffic Overview tile shows categorized breakdown of the ways Distil detected bad bots threatening your site.
Bad Bot Traffic by Country
The Bad Bot Traffic by Country tile provides a breakdown of countries having the highest number of threats against your site.
Traffic by Distil Action
The Traffic by Distil Action tile displays the various ways Distil Networks has trapped threats to your site and its content from incoming bad bots. Using this tile data, you can get a high-level overview of the most active traps.
The CATPTCHA Overview tile gives you an overview of CAPTCHA activity related to your site, including the number of times CAPTCHA pages were served, attempted, solved, and failed. This tile helps you to determine how effective CAPTCHA pages are as litmus tests in relation to letting human users in and blocking out malicious bots.
