General Settings

The General tab of the Settings section allows users to switch between different Wallarm operation modes:

  • Local settings (default): this mode exploits settings from a filter node configuration file.

  • Safe blocking: all malicious requests originated from greylisted IPs are blocked.

  • Monitoring: all requests are processed, but none of them are blocked even if an attack is detected.

  • Blocking: all requests where an attack was detected are blocked.

Changes in the off and monitoring filtration mode logic

Starting with version 3.2, the logic of Wallarm node filtration modes has been changed as follows:

  • Wallarm node analyzes request source only in the safe_blocking and block modes now.
  • If the Wallarm node operating in the off or monitoring mode detects the request originated from the blacklisted IP, it does not block this request.
  • If the Wallarm node operating in the monitoring mode detects the attack originated from the whitelisted IP, it uploads the attack data to the Wallarm Cloud. Uploaded data is displayed in the Events section of the Wallarm Console.

During the Wallarm module upgrade, please ensure that deployed Wallarm node 3.2 processes requests as expected or adjust filtration mode settings to the released changes.

If you have already updated modules, please adjust the filtration mode settings to changes released in version 3.2 (if necessary). Details on filtration mode configuration

General tab overview


Those Wallarm customers plugged in with Qrator traffic filters have the Blocking with Qrator setting. This setting enables automatic malicious requests blocking. The blocking is done with the Qrator IP blacklists. Wallarm transfers to Qrator the data on those IP addresses from which the attacks originated.
