Summary0003702: Backing-off algorithm for flood control
DescriptionRather than the flood control just limiting the number of hits per second per IP, have it reduce the allowed rate for an IP over time.

For example, if 10 hits per 10 seconds are allowed, only allow say 40 hits per 60 seconds, and 100 hits per 10 minutes, and so on.

This is to reduce the ability for botnets to max out the rate limit on a number of machines in parallel (Layer-7 DDOS).
