Speed Limiting

Speed limiting allows you to control the maximum speed per connection that every IP address could achieve. When used together with IP limiting, this feature provides an effective bandwidth throttling machanism that works on per-user level and helps to keep abusers or visitors with fast connections from occupying large amounts of your CDN's available bandwidth.

Speed limits are set in KB/s (KiloBytes per second) and can take up to 5 minutes to become effective.

If you are serving VOD content to your visitors, this limit should be set higher than the maximum bitrate of your video content to avoid playback interruptions.
