Rate limiting plugin is not working in db-less mode of kong


i am using kong db-less mode. i have enabled rate limiting plugin on my upstream service. but when i test it is not working as expected in concurrent clients. i read the ratelimiting plugin documentation. it says , ratelimiting plugin is partially compatable with db-less mode.

can you please help us , what are the limitations for rate limitng plugin in db-less mode.

Thanks in advance

I would think it has to configured to local mode for the mem type otherwise you would need a 3rd party redis cluster for it to connect to if you were trying to distribute the rate globally among a kong cluster.
