Rate Limiting Config


Could someone please give me more insight on the config option config.limit_by for the rate limiting plugin. What can this option do and in what use cases can we use it and any other information, it would be really helpful.

Best regards,

It asks for which entity would you like to set your rate limiting on. for ex. you can set your rate limiting on service and kong will do calculations based on service. These are possible options : consumer , credential , ip , service , header , path.
