This is an example of an entry in the log, left by HttpLimitReqModule:
2013/10/27 10:00:11 [error] 1402#0: *313355 limiting requests, excess: 0.580
by zone "zone1", client: 126.96.36.199, server: api.acme.com, request: "GET
/location/locate-ip?key=xxxx&ip=188.8.131.52 HTTP/1.1", host:
What does "excess: 0.580" mean exactly? What is the unit of that value?
Requests? Requests per second?
There is no information in the documentation, as far as I know.
Thanks in advance,
