This is an example of an entry in the log, left by HttpLimitReqModule:
2013/10/27 10:00:11 [error] 1402#0: *313355 limiting requests, excess:
by zone “zone1”, client: 18.104.22.168, server: api.acme.com, request:
/location/locate-ip?key=xxxx&ip=22.214.171.124 HTTP/1.1”, host:
What does “excess: 0.580” mean exactly? What is the unit of that value?
Requests? Requests per second?
There is no information in the documentation, as far as I know.
Thanks in advance,
