Traffic Options

Specify traffic options for the UTM policy.

In an attempt to consume all available resources, a malicious user might generate a large amount of traffic all at once. To prevent such activity from succeeding, you can impose traffic options:

  • Connection limit per client—Specify the connection limit per client; default is 2000.

  • Action when connection limit is reached—Specify the action that must be taken once the connection limit is reached. The available actions are None, Log and Permit, and Block.
