Traffic Policing

Traffic policing allows you to limit the rate and number of requests flowing to your web servers. Traffic policing measures can ensure that users get the desired quality of service, and they can even prevent malicious traffic such as DDoS attacks.

In practice, traffic policing involves denying requests when request rates or counts exceed specified thresholds.
