set rate-limit connections global
Set the process-wide connection rate limit.
You can limit the rate at which the load balancer accepts new connections by setting the global setting
maxconnrate. In the snippet below, 1,000 connections per second are allowed:
Note that this limit is process-wide, so it is possible for one frontend to consume the majority of the capacity. However, you can also set a per-frontend limit with either the
rate-limit sessions directive or with a stick table.
set rate-limit connections global command to change the global
maxconnrate setting dynamically.
Below, we set the global connection rate limit to 5,000 connections per second:
$ echo "set rate-limit connections global 5000" |
