IP Flood - What does it, documentation and where to configure

Hi all,

short question from my side. I just saw the row "IP Flood" under Intrusion Protection --> DoS Attacks.

webadmin DoS attacks overview

I was curios, why it was turned of and then saw, that there is no way to configure it. At least not in the DoS settings:

Furthermore, the documentation page doesn't cover this as well: DoS & spoof protection - Sophos Firewall and DoS attacks - Sophos Firewall

IP Flood is only mentioned on the CLI docs. But as well only as an on/off switch: system - Sophos Firewall

Am I just not getting and overseeing the obvious thing? :D
Also, what would it actually do in addition to TCP, SYN, UDP and ICMP flood detection?
