If your Firebox has Botnet Detection enabled, and there are log messages related to botnet traffic on your Firebox, when you filter on the details in a category, the Top Blocked Clients section shows the top clients that were blocked when they tried to connect to a botnet site, and the Top Blocked Destination section shows the top hosts that the botnet site tried to connect to.

If this dashboard is not available for your device, follow the steps to Enable Logging for this Dashboard.
