The Arbor systems may see 'scan' traffic (depending upon sample rates and traffic loads) and they may not... They aren't designed to see that, they are designed to: (speaking of peakflow SP, peakflow Traffic, peakflow DoS only... peakflow X isn't really a 'provider' solution as much as a 'enterprise' tool) 1) to watch traffic and alarm against thresholds 2) track traffic trends over time 3) report traffic trends over time (possibly some other things out of scope of this discussion... someone from Arbor could/should clarify) Some of your cflowd gathering should also see these things, but they will need data correlation, something Arbor already went to the trouble of doing for you... So, define: "attack" and then see if your tool fits that definition.
