As we now that we can set maximum HTTP requests / second from a single client in Haproxy or Nginx load balancer. Is this configuration or an equivalent feature exists in Digitalocean load balancer?

DO’s load balancer is rate limited to 200 requests per second. Currently this is not a configurable option.

Allowing a hacker to hit a login, password reset or other security sensitive endpoint 200 times per second is too much. Will DO load balancers ever have configurable rate limiting?
