Community Update - Introducing the new and improved Network Analytics dashboard

Have you switched to the new Network Analytics v2 dashboard yet?

The access to the Network Analytics v1 dashboard and its associated GraphQL nodes (ipflows) will be disabled on August 1, 2023.

On May 1, 2023, we announced the new Network Analytics v2 dashboard and provided an early notice on the upcoming end-of-life of the old dashboard (v1).

If you are using Cloudflare’s GraphQL API to query against ipflow tables, please migrate to use the new tables as soon as possible. Review the migration guide for more details.

To learn more, check out the original announcement blog, a technical deep-dive blog detailing how we built the new dashboard, the developer documentation and our community of experts.

Alternatively, log in to your Cloudflare account and navigate to Analytics & Logs > Network Analytics.

What is the Network Analytics dashboard?

The Network Analytics v2 dashboard provides network operators improved visibility into traffic behavior, firewall events, and DDoS attacks as observed across Cloudflare’s global network. Some of the dashboard’s new data points include:

  • An executive summary and the top traffic, attack attributes, and attack vectors
  • Visibility into DDoS mitigations, including Advanced TCP Protection mitigation
  • Granular Magic Firewall events
  • Detailed packet samples, including full packets headers and metadata

This dashboard was the outcome of a full refactoring of our network-layer data logging pipeline. The new data pipeline is decentralized and much more flexible than the previous one — making it more resilient, performant, and scalable.

In addition to the dashboard, the new data pipeline also powers:

  1. Weekly Network DDoS Reports
  2. Real time L3/4 DDoS alerts
  3. Network Analytics Logpush

Please migrate as soon as possible to avoid impact to your workflows. We are here for you for any additional questions or concerns.

Thank you,

The Cloudflare team
