»/sys/quotas/rate-limit

The /sys/quotas/rate-limit endpoint is used to create, edit and delete rate limit quotas.

»Create or Update a Rate Limit Quota

This endpoint is used to create a rate limit quota with an identifier, name. A rate limit quota must include a rate value with an optional path that can either be a namespace or mount.

MethodPath
POST/sys/quotas/rate-limit/:name

»Parameters

  • name (string: "") - The name of the quota.
  • path (string: "") - Path of the mount or namespace to apply the quota. A blank path configures a global rate limit quota. For example namespace1/ adds a quota to a full namespace, namespace1/auth/userpass adds a quota to userpass in namespace1. Updating this field on an existing quota can have "moving" effects. For example, updating auth/userpass to namespace1/auth/userpass moves this quota from being a global mount quota to a namespace specific mount quota. Note, namespaces are supported in Enterprise only.
  • rate (float: 0.0) - The maximum number of requests in a given interval to be allowed by the quota rule. The rate must be positive.
  • interval (string: "") - The duration to enforce rate limiting for (default "1s").
  • block_interval (string: "") - If set, when a client reaches a rate limit threshold, the client will be prohibited from any further requests until after the 'block_interval' has elapsed.
