Hi All,

According to NGINX wiki,

limit_req_zone $binary_remote_addr zone=one:10m rate=1r/s;

server {
location /search/ {
limit_req zone=one burst=5;

means allows a user no more than 1 request per second on average, with bursts of no more than 5 requests.

But what's the difference between rate= and burst=?
For example,

limit_req_zone $binary_remote_addr zone=one:10m rate=1r/s;
limit_req zone=one burst=5;

limit_req_zone $binary_remote_addr zone=one:10m rate=5r/s;
limit_req zone=one burst=1;

What's the difference between above code? From my understanding, for both settings, users can establish no more than 6 requests at the same time._______________________________________________
