This is number of requests acumulated in the bucket. If this
number is more than burst defined (10 in your case), further
request will be rejected.
Number of requests in the bucket is reduced according to the rate
defined and current time, and may not be integer. The ".195"
means that an additional request will be allowed in about 195
milliseconds assuming rate 1r/s.
