My requirements are to be able to rate limit or temporarily hard block any requests to our server for a particular URL if the client sends more than x requests per hour.
There are about 250K urls that could potentially be blocked.
Clients have unique urls that they make a http post too, so something like:
Where customer1 is the customer name, and 36A107F4-DD68-47F2-A093-753F7A427CF6 is their unique location guid.
I want my application to be able to make some sort of an API call to block a given url, and then either use an API call to unblock or have the block expire after x minutes.
Is this possible with any open source service like haproxy or nginx?
