As soon as you enable this we apply a set of rules to limit the number of requests clients can make to the site. This is designed to keep a site online while blocking a DoS attempt.
You should not just leave sites in this mode!
Once activated we will apply the following rules –
- 5 requests per second per IP, burst of 120
- 60 requests per minute, burst of 300
- Maximum of 10 active connections per IP
You can create your own request zones in the Accelerator to apply more customized limits.
