Queue burst with timer

Hello,

I hope I am in the right category, because this is not a request for help that I am asking for, but a simple question.

Is it possible with Caddy to make a waiting list if too many requests impact the site? A bit like some big site that displays a waiting list when there are too many people.

I couldn’t find anything about it.

I hope my question is clear and thank you in advance.

You want a rate limiter!

It’s not exactly a “waiting list” (that’s more of a “throttle” than a “Rate limiter”) but you probably don’t want a throttle because that tends to explode resource usage rather than reducing resource usage. The point of a rate limiter is to protect the server.
