Control packet flow

In the attack detection settings what is a good packet flow rate for TCP UDP ICMP?
I asked this before but didnt get much help, if anybody can help me i would really appreciate it.
If I set it to 5 packets every 5 seconds does that mean that what ever program I use can send only 5 packets every 5 seconds?
I don’t really understand.

Hello James505

20 Packets is a good rate (By Default)

I May be wrong when i say it’s per program (So Program A can send # packets per second)
I’ll ask other moderators to take a look at your question

Did this help?
