    Parameter Description
    Product Type The default value is GameShield (Subscription).
    DAUs The number of daily active units (DAUs). By default, 80,000 DAUs are allowed. The value is determined by the values of Standalone Instances and Clean Bandwidth and cannot be modified.

    For more information, see Billable resources.

    Standalone Instances The number of GameShield instances that you want to purchase. The default value is 1.

    Resources are isolated among instances to protect different services.

    By default, a standalone GameShield instance supports a gateway capacity of 100,000 queries per second (QPS) and contains 10 defense nodes. The system automatically increases 50,000 DAUs each time an instance is added.

    Clean Bandwidth The clean bandwidth for normal workloads that the instance supports. Minimum value: 100 Mbit/s.

    The system automatically configures 300 DAUs for each additional clean bandwidth of 1 Mbit/s. The system automatically configures one defense node for each additional clean bandwidth of 10 Mbit/s.

    The value of Clean Bandwidth is estimated based on the number of services to be protected by the current instance. Set it to the value of either the inbound traffic or outbound traffic whose value is bigger. For more information, see Clean bandwidth.

    Warning If the traffic on your instance exceeds the clean bandwidth, packet loss or service disruption may occur. We recommend that you upgrade your clean bandwidth in a timely manner.
    Duration The validity period of the instance. The default value is 1 year and cannot be modified.

    If you select Auto renewal, auto-renewal is triggered before the expiration date of the instance.
