Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack is one in which a multiple sources attack a single target causing denial of service for legitimate users of the targeted system. The flood of incoming traffic totally overwhelms the system, hence denying service to legitimate users.

Loss percentage :
number of packets or bytes lost due to the interaction of the legitimate traffic with the attack

Transaction Duration :
time between the start and end of the data transfer between a source and destination

Attack Traffic Filtering percentage :
overall percentage of attack traffic filtered after the detection of the attack

Detection percentage :
percentage of exactly defined attack sources

Traceback :
identification of the sources of the offending packets during and after the attack
