Bedrock Solutions announces the release of version 0.5.2 of its factomd API proxy. This release features rate limiting on writes.
The rate limiting subsystem supports both writes-per-second (WPS) and writes-per-block (WPB) limiters.
WPS limiting establishes a maximum number of WPS that will be sent over the network. It also establishes a burst rate for writes, which will delay writes by a variable amount to spread the burst over a longer duration. The system defaults to 3 WPS with a 10 WPS burst. Rates over 10 WPS will be rejected with a 429 error.
WPB limiting establishes a write quota which resets every 10 minutes. The system defaults to 1200 writes per 10 minutes.
