Pix threat detection

I was looking at the config of my pix and noticed the following code.
threat-detection rate dos-drop rate-interval 600 average-rate 300 burst-rate 400
threat-detection rate dos-drop rate-interval 3600 average-rate 160 burst-rate 320
threat-detection rate scanning-threat rate-interval 600 average-rate 50 burst-rate 50
threat-detection rate scanning-threat rate-interval 3600 average-rate 60 burst-rate 80
threat-detection basic-threat
How can I have 2 dos and 2 scans configured at the same time? How do I know which one is working?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can have 2 because the time is different, that is you accept different values for an hourly rate than for a 10-min rate.
So they both work.

If you do "show threat-detection rate" you will also notice is shows 10-min & 1-hour values.
