Monitoring DDoS Mitigation Services

Gain visibility into DDoS attacks handled by DDoS mitigation services.

DDoS Monitoring

DDoS attacks can severely cripple critical applications. They put large strains on your network and the upstream networks that you rely on. Whether you're using a cloud-based Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) mitigation service or an on-site mitigation strategy, external visibility is essential to understanding and ensuring user experience.

ThousandEyes gives you an external perspective into your application's performance during a DDoS attack. We visualize the impact of an ongoing DDoS attack, show the effectiveness of your response and record performance data for real-time sharing and detailed forensics.

ThousandEyes makes it easy to understand the impact of DDoS attacks and mitigation efforts, as they are happening.

With ThousandEyes, you can:
  • Quickly locate packet loss, high latency links and overloaded scrubbing centers that impact your application performance.
  • Clearly see what is being stressed: DNS, ISP networks, edge routers or an overloaded app server.
  • Identify underperforming elements within your mitigation vendor, such as overloaded scrubbing centers or misrouted traffic.
  • Easily correlate this information against baseline behavior, compare time periods and save data for later forensics.
