Why doesn't the firewall show the source of a DOS attack?

TZ470 firmware 7.0.1-5145

There is very little details in this alert. I would like to see the source IP so I can just block it.

    it could be false positive info.

    @Ajishlal It could be, although I am getting these in the log every about every 30 minutes. Also, the fact that this Sonicwall rebooted all by itself yesterday. I created a case with support about that yesterday since I've personally never seen a Sonicwall reboot by itself.

    Also, this location has been having internet issues the past couple weeks with it being compounded by Comcast issues 3 weeks prior where they ended up replacing their modem.

    So while it's possible these are false positive, they are more than likely legit. So my question still stands to Sonicwall, why is there no info? Especially an IP Source address?
