This functionality is in beta and is subject to change. The design and code is less mature than official GA features and is being provided as-is with no warranties. Beta features are not subject to the support SLA of official GA features.
rate_limit processor limits the throughput of events based on
the specified configuration.
In the current implementation, rate-limited events are dropped. Future implementations may allow rate-limited events to be handled differently.
processors: - rate_limit: limit: "10000/m"
processors: - rate_limit: fields: - "cloudfoundry.org.name" limit: "400/s"
processors: - if.equals.cloudfoundry.org.name: "acme" then: - rate_limit: limit: "500/s"
The following settings are supported:
The rate limit. Supported time units for the rate are
m(per minute), and
- (Optional) List of fields. The rate limit will be applied to each distinct value derived by combining the values of these fields.
