WAF plans to adjust the billing of BOT traffic management fees starting from October 11, 2023.
Updates are as follows:
Before adjustment: The BOT traffic management fee is billed independently from the WAF instance, with a quota of 2500 QPS per month. For out-of-plan QPS, you can purchase extra packages (750 USD/1000 QPS/month).
After adjustment: The BOT traffic management fee is billed together with the WAF instance. It shares the QPS quota of the WAF instance. The QPS quota varies by the instance edition. The selling of extra packages for BOT traffic management stops. For out-of-plan QPS, you can purchase extra capacity packages at a price of 275 USD/1000 QPS/month (for Chinese mainland regions) or 300 USD/1000 QPS/month (for regions outside the Chinese mainland).
The above policy starts canary release gradually from September 2023, and will be officially launched from October 11, 2023. Thanks for your support. If you have any questions, please contact us.
