Firewall rules

The Terraform template that Alert Logic provided to you sets up the firewall rules when it creates your Managed WAF instances in Google Cloud Platform (GCP). For information about the firewall rules set up for you, see the US firewall rules for Managed WAF or the EU firewall rules for Managed WAF.

Instance type sizes

The following table shows the instance sizes and types that Managed WAF can use in GCP:

Size Instance type
