The Assets page of the Anti-DDoS Basic console shows a list of assets that belong to an Alibaba Cloud account and the protection status of each asset. These assets include ECS, SLB, and EIP instances. The information allows you to obtain an overview of security risks from distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks for your assets. You can also improve protection for an asset.


  1. Log on to the Alibaba Cloud Anti-DDoS Basic console.
  2. On the top of the Assets page, select a region.
  3. Select the ECS, SLB, EIP (including NAT), or Others tab based on the type of cloud service for which you want to configure a cleaning threshold.
  4. In a list of assets, view the protection status of each asset.
    The Assets page lists all assets in a region and provides further details about protection against DDoS attacks for each asset. The details include the status, protection capacity, and cleaning trigger value.
    • Status indicates the security state of an instance. Available states include Normal, Cleaning, and Black Hole Activated.
    • Protection capacity indicates the capability of protection against DDoS attacks for an instance. The capacity refers to the maximum throughput of DDoS attacks against which defense can be provided. If the bandwidth that DDoS attacks consume exceeds the protection capacity of an instance, a black hole is triggered and all packets that are routed to the instance is dropped. For more information about how to improve protection capacity for an instance, see Step 5.
    • Cleaning Trigger Value indicates the minimum throughput that must be reached before traffic cleaning is triggered. The throughput is measured in Mbit/s and packets per second (PPS). For more information, see Configure a cleaning threshold.
  5. Improve the protection capacity for a specific asset.
