As with the other scales, the scales are quantity-based, i.e., in the case of ten commissioned WAFs, the first scale is used for the first three WAFs, the second for the following four and the third for the last three. Additional costs for requests occur: one million requests will be charged with 60 cents. Apart from requests and WAF instances, there are no other costs. You can create as many rules/policies as you want without incurring any additional costs.
