By enabling rate limiting Peakhour will track IP's that access a given resource.

Based on defined thresholds, the rate limit service will block access to the resource for a given period. Peakhour monitors:

  • connections
  • bandwidth
  • requests

for each client ip address. If a client reaches the defined threshold in the defined period, the client is restricted from accessing the website until the block duration is reached.

Rate limiting needs to be configured by a Peakhour support member.
