Thanks raises a question of why the default status code on limit_conn and limit_req is a 503 instead of a 429.

limit_conn_status 503;
limit_req_status 503;

But under a DoS attack I always feel those values would be better being "444" since the server won't respond and cut's the connection rather than waste bandwidth on a client who is opening and closing connections fast as a bullet. You tend to get allot of 499's in your access.log when really you should not even waste your bandwidth output trying to respond to them.

Is it worth me changing the default status codes or keeping them at default.

Also I am going to start out with itpp2012's advice setting it at the low value and increasing it based on what companies crawlers require a more brutal crawl rate Francis Daly's idea is also good though but since I use "burst=5" instead of "nodelay" on my request limit I get to find out what crawlers would actually wait for the current request that they are experiencing a loading page on to finish.
