describe-attack-statistics

Description

Provides information about the number and type of attacks Shield has detected in the last year for all resources that belong to your account, regardless of whether you've defined Shield protections for them. This operation is available to Shield customers as well as to Shield Advanced customers.

The operation returns data for the time range of midnight UTC, one year ago, to midnight UTC, today. For example, if the current time is 2020-10-26 15:39:32 PDT , equal to 2020-10-26 22:39:32 UTC , then the time range for the attack data returned is from 2019-10-26 00:00:00 UTC to 2020-10-26 00:00:00 UTC .

The time range indicates the period covered by the attack statistics data items.

Options

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

Output

TimeRange -> (structure)

The time range of the attack.

FromInclusive -> (timestamp)

The start time, in Unix time in seconds.

ToExclusive -> (timestamp)

The end time, in Unix time in seconds.

DataItems -> (list)

The data that describes the attacks detected during the time period.

(structure)

A single attack statistics data record. This is returned by DescribeAttackStatistics along with a time range indicating the time period that the attack statistics apply to.

AttackVolume -> (structure)

Information about the volume of attacks during the time period. If the accompanying AttackCount is zero, this setting might be empty.

BitsPerSecond -> (structure)

A statistics object that uses bits per second as the unit. This is included for network level attacks.

Max -> (double)

The maximum attack volume observed for the given unit.

PacketsPerSecond -> (structure)

A statistics object that uses packets per second as the unit. This is included for network level attacks.

Max -> (double)

The maximum attack volume observed for the given unit.

RequestsPerSecond -> (structure)

A statistics object that uses requests per second as the unit. This is included for application level attacks, and is only available for accounts that are subscribed to Shield Advanced.

Max -> (double)

The maximum attack volume observed for the given unit.

AttackCount -> (long)

The number of attacks detected during the time period. This is always present, but might be zero.
