This controls attacks using invalid requests or distant,

By default the limit on errors is the same as the
default base <command>responses-per-second</command> value,
<command>responses-per-second</command> value,
but it can be set separately with
In addition to the base
<command>responses-per-second</command> value,
up to four (4) additional
<command>responses-per-second</command> options can be
configured, with additional parameters to indicate that
they apply to responses larger than a given size,
or with an amplification factor larger than a given
The <command>size</command> parameter sets the minimum
DNS response size that will trigger the use of this
<command>responses-per-second</command> option.
The <command>ratio</command> parameter sets the minimum
DNS response-size / request-size ratio that falls into the
band, to two decimal places.
These selective rate limits are applied after any other
rate limits have been applied, and they only apply to
positive answers. For example:
rate-limit {
responses-per-second 10;
responses-per-second size 1100 5;
...indicates that responses should be limited to ten per second
for responses up to 1099 bytes in size, but only five per second
for responses larger than that. This configuration:
rate-limit {
responses-per-second 10;
responses-per-second ratio 7.25 5;
responses-per-second ratio 15.00 2;
...indicates that responses should be limited to ten per
second if the amplification factor is below 7.25, five per
second if above 7.25 but below 15, and two per second if
above 15.
Both sizes and ratios can be used together. For example:
rate-limit {
responses-per-second 10;
responses-per-second size 1000 ratio 5.00 5;
responses-per-second ratio 10.00 2;
This configuration will rate-limit to five per second if
the ratio is over 5 <emphasis>or</emphasis> the size is over
1000, and to two per second if the ratio is over 10. In the
event that two bands might be chosen (i.e., because the size
is over 1000 <emphasis>and</emphasis> the ratio is over 10),
the one that appears last in the configuration file is the
one chosen. To eliminate any ambiguity, it is recommended
that under normal circumstances, rate limiting bands should
be configured using either <command>size</command> or
<command>ratio</command> parameters, but not both.
