Routed reports

Reporting tools that provide information on the Prolexic routed service activity, attacks, anomalies and configuration events as well as trends observed over longer time.

View routed map dashboard

For Prolexic routed service users. The Routed Map dashboard displays data from your Prolexic routed service during peacetime and attack conditions, and for post-attack forensics.

The left-hand area of the view shows how each of ‚ÄčAkamai‚Äč's endpoints (scrubbing centers) receiving inbound traffic connects to each of your endpoints (routers). Each line (tunnel) between the two shows the connection status:

  • Up - Connection Healthy, Traffic Seen for live traffic

  • Inactive - Connection Healthy, No Traffic when ready and standing by

  • Down - Connectivity Not Verifiable when experiencing issues

On the right you can see your prefixes (configured subnets/CIDRs) and their statuses. Green dot indicates that a specific network is routed on. Networks marked with a white dot are not routed on, which could be the case if you use Prolexic in an on-demand mode.

Beneath that is an area that displays 24 hours of bandwidth history for any element (endpoints, tunnels, or networks) you select in the other areas. For example, selecting a scrubbing center displays the traffic it's seen over the last 24 hours, as well as its current data center connections.

During an attack, the view displays total traffic being ingested by the scrubbing network, as well as what is being sent down each of the tunnels or VLL circuits.

Use routed trends

To best understand your traffic, Prolexic routed collects telemetry and alerts on anomalies at various points in the traffic path. The routed trends view exposes these events and time series to help understand traffic flows.

Combined view

A time line of events from the Event Map aligned with traffic data as defined in the Traffic Graphs.

To display which traffic graph a line represents, as well as its source and metric, mouse over the line in the graph.
To zoom in on the graph, click your mouse at a start point in the graph and drag it to an end point.

Event map

The event map highlights events like attacks triggered and configuration changes based on the time frame selected. Hovering your mouse over an event displays its details.

To download the data for further analysis in the CSV format, click the download button on the right side of the screen.

Traffic graphs

The traffic graphs provide you with details of your traffic data based on the dimensions you select in the right-hand panel:

  • Source

  • Pre-mitigation flow

  • Post-mitigation flow

  • Traffic to origin

  • FBM (if applicable)

  • Metric

  • BPS

  • PPS

  • Show By

  • None

  • Security Configuration

  • Scrubbing Center

  • Filter

  • None

  • Security Configuration

  • Scrubbing Center

To display the details of an event, hover your mouse over it.

To download the data for further analysis in the CSV format, click the download button on the right side of the screen.

To create additional graphs to customize your view and compare data, click Add Graph. To remove a graph, click the x on the right of its header.

Use routed events

Routed events focuses on triggered events, including attack alerts, FMB and ABM anomalies, and configuration changes, and provides details on them.

The list contains all the events that occurred in the selected time period with overview information like severity, first and last seen dates and times, configuration, IP addresses, and a summary.

On the right side of the screen the time line for events shows you when they occured. Click on the icons at the top to filter out specific events.

In the list on the left, you can click on an event to display the details. The specific details provided vary depending on what type of event you're viewing. For example, if you're viewing details for an attack event, you'll see a number of graphs representing pre- and post-mitigation BPS and PPS, as well as peaks, Mbps, and kbps by scrubbing center location.
