Rate Filtering

rate_filter provides rate based attack prevention by allowing users to configure a new action to take for a specified time when a given rate is exceeded. Multiple rate filters can be defined on the same rule, in which case they are evaluated in the order they appear in the configuration file, and the first applicable action is taken.
