Anti-DDoS Origin automatically detects attacks and cleans malicious traffic for instances that experience flood attacks. You can cancel traffic cleaning for public IP addresses that are in an abnormal state. For example, you can cancel traffic cleaning for a public IP address that is in the Cleaning state. This topic describes how to cancel traffic cleaning.

What to do next

After you cancel traffic cleaning, we recommend that you increase the cleaning threshold. This is suitable for scenarios, such as large activities or promotions, that involve sharp increases in traffic. A higher cleaning threshold ensures that traffic cleaning is not triggered again after you cancel traffic cleaning. For more information, see Configure a traffic scrubbing threshold.
Note The maximum traffic cleaning threshold varies based on cloud services. If the maximum traffic cleaning threshold cannot meet your requirements, we recommend that you upgrade cloud services.
