Configuring a rate limit for log messages

When a hacker breaks into a website, it can be hard to tell who is originating the attack without knowing the IP address. However, there are ways to prevent future attacks by using data analytics based on this data. For example, you can create alerts based on the patterns of the IP addresses of the users on your website.

GigaVUE H Series

The GigaVUE H Series allows you to configure and monitor logging. You can log events in the GigaVUE H Series management console by specifying the IP address of your external syslog server. GigaVUE H Series devices send logged events through UDP to a hostname or IPv6 address that you define.

NSX Advanced Load Balancer

The NSX Advanced Load Balancer supports uploading any type of file as a local response. To upload a file using this feature, you must first encode the file using out-of-band Base64 encoding. You can also use this feature to send HTTP redirects.

WebLogic Server

To log messages from a WebLogic server, you need to know the IP address of the server. The IP address can be obtained by contacting the appropriate DNS server, or you can specify it in the local file. In either case, you must leave the port open long enough to connect to the server and specify the IP address mapping.


LiveJournal allows its users to log the IP address of the people who comment on their blog. To enable this feature, visit My Account Settings and select the Privacy tab. Then, click on the “IP address log” option. Here, you can enable logging for all commenters or just anonymous commenters.

Configuring a rate limit for log messages

Configuring a rate limit for log messages with an IP address will help you to protect your application against resource starvation. While it is rare to be the target of a malicious attack, you should limit the number of messages you send per second to prevent your system from overloading. To set a rate limit for log messages with an IP address, use the following syntax.

Configuring a short IP logger

An IP logger is an application that allows you to track the location of your computer. To use one, you can go to a tracking website and sign up for an account. Once you have an account, you will need to enter a legitimate URL and tracking code to get started. After you have completed this process, you will need to click on the “Shorten URL” button to generate a short IP logger link. You can then use this URL to track your computer’s location and gather statistics.
