Non-human traffic makes up most of the traffic to sites. Bot Manager is designed to detect and block, or otherwise direct, non-human traffic that can interfere with site operations. The Bot Manager features mitigate bots that conduct content and price scraping, vulnerability scanning, comment spam, brute force attacks, and application-layer DDoS attacks. You can also manage the good bot whitelist.
When you enable Bot Management, you incur a higher rate on requests to the WAF.
