Why cloudflare didn't block the ddos attack?

I did a test ddos attack on my test server and I see that cloudflare didn’t block the ddos attack

How can implement this on a free plan?

I did run a quick test on one of our sites, it’s true that it’s ignored by the DDoS protection and WAF, the reason is that the attack that the service is performing does not adjust to what you’d see in a real case scenario.

You can implement a rate limit and the attack would most likely be completely patched.
