For API Acceleration, you can set up an alert called High Edge Hits which notifies you when there is an increase in edge server traffic that exceeds the hits/sec threshold specified in the alert configuration. The increase in traffic may be due to a variety of causes. A gradual increase over time could simply indicate the popularity of the requested content. However requests coming from the same source, for example, Client IPs, User Agents, or URLs, may indicate an attack.
Configure the threshold criteria for this alert to a logical value sufficiently higher than typical traffic for any given time of day. Take into consideration planned events that could impact traffic.
For a complete list of available alerts and instructions on how to manage them, refer to: Alerts.
