"Minimum TPS Threshold" vs "Minimum Latency Threshold"

Hello,

Quoting the F5 help it says:

"Minimum Latency Threshold for detection: Specifies that the system considers traffic to be an attack if the detection interval for a specific URL equals, or is greater than, this number, and at least one of the Latency increased by or Latency reached numbers was reached. If the detection interval is lower than this number, the system does not consider this traffic to be an attack even if one of the Latency increased by or Latency reached numbers was reached."

"Minimum TPS Threshold for detection: Specifies that the system considers an IP address to be an attacker if the detected TPS for a specific IP address equals, or is greater than, this number, and the TPS increased by number was reached. If the detected TPS is lower than this number, the system does not consider this IP address to be an attacker even if the TPS increased by number was reached."

The question is, shouldn´t the "TPS Reached" number be taken into account in the "Minimum TPS Threshold" as the "Latency reached number" is considered in the "Minimum Latency Threshold? Looks like the documentation is not updated.

Thanks.

if this is the built in help then it lags a little behind for newer features from time to time in my experience.

Yes, it is the built in documentation. Must be outdated.

Thanks!

to be sure please raise a support ticket, that way it might get updated in the next version.
