Viewing the Traffic Rate

If traffic through one or more virtual servers matches a rate-based policy, you can view the rate of this traffic. The rate statistics are maintained in the limit identifier that you named in the rule for the rate-based policy. If more than one policy uses the same limit identifier, you can view the traffic rate as defined by hits to all of the policies that use the particular limit identifier.

To view the traffic rate by using the command line interface

At the command prompt, type the following command to view the traffic rate:

show ns limitSessions <limitIdentifier>

Example:

sh limitsession myLimitSession

To view the traffic rate by using the GUI

  1. Navigate to AppExpert > Rate Limiting > Limit Identifiers.
  2. Select a limit identifier whose traffic rate you want to view.
  3. Click the Show Sessions button. If traffic through one or more virtual servers has matched a rate limiting policy that uses this limit identifier (and the hits are within the configured time slice for this identifier), the Session Details dialog box appears. Otherwise, you receive a “No session exists” message.
