nginx limit_req and limit_conn not working to prevent DoS attack

I assume it would help dropping connections . since we are setting rate
limit per ip and any client IP which is suspicious by sending requests in
bulk(lets say 10000 connections/requests), it makes sense to not to accept
connections/requests from that IP.

Thoughts ??
