DDoS basic protection configuration

Last Updated: Mar 20, 2018

Alibaba Cloud Security Anti-DDoS Basic mitigates SYN flood, UDP flood, ACK flood, ICMP flood, and DNS flood DDoS attacks.

Follow these steps to configure Anti-DDoS Basic:

  1. Log on to the Alibaba Cloud Security Anti-DDoS Basic console.

  2. Select the region.

  3. Select ECS, Server Load Balancer, or EIP, enter an instance IP, and click Search.

    Locate the instance IP

  4. Select the instance IP and click View details.

  5. Click Advanced Anti-DDoS settings and configure the cleaning threshold value setting for the IP.

    When traffic exceeds this threshold value, Anti-DDoS Basic traffic cleaning is triggered.

    Note: We recommend that you adjust the cleaning threshold value appropriately when your website has some promotion activities.

    Cleaning threshold value setting

    • Automatic setting: Anti-DDoS Basic service dynamically adjusts the cleaning threshold value based on the traffic load status.
    • Manual setting: After enabling Manual setting, you can select the traffic and packet threshold values manually. When traffic exceeds this threshold value, Anti-DDoS Basic traffic cleaning is triggered.

      Note: The cleaning threshold value can be a bit bigger than the actual access traffic value. If the threshold value is too big, it is not effective on DDoS attacks defense; if the threshold value is too small, the normal access can be affected due to the unexpected traffic cleaning.

When traffic to an IP reaches the cleaning threshold value, you can view the cleaning information in the Alibaba Cloud Security Anti-DDoS Basic console. If normal access requests are affected, you can cancel the traffic cleaning and adjust the cleaning threshold value appropriately.
