Reset or Refresh the Hit Count

##Configure the Hit Count Interval for a Firewall Policy

  1. Click a firewall rule to open it (or create a new firewall rule) and scroll to the Hit Counter section.
  2. From the Time Interval drop-down list, choose a time interval.

For example, to see how many times a social media app was blocked in the last day, choose Last 24 Hours. Then reduce the interval for more granular information, such as what times during the day the app was blocked.
