Hierarchy Level


Configure the maximum number of transactions matched by application identification for finalizing the application.

Application classification does not terminate for applications that are transaction based such as Facebook applications. To terminate the application classifications for such applications, you can choose to consider the results from multiple transaction as the final classification. You can configure the number of transactions before concluding the final result for the identified application.

For example, when you configure the maximum number of transactions as 10, the following sequence is applied for identifying the final application:

  • In the first and second transactions, application-1 and application-2 are identified respectively.

  • The identification process continues till the 10th transaction is reached.

  • Since 10th transaction is equal to the configured value of the maximum number of transactions, the application identified in this transaction is considered as the final match.
