You've configured "burst=100", and nginx starts to reject requests
when the accumulated number of requests (excess) exceeds
the configured burst size.
In short, the algorithm works as follows: every request increments
excess by 1, and decrements it according to the rate configured. If
the resulting value is greater than burst, the request is
rejected. You can read more about the algorithm used in
Wikipedia, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leaky_bucket.
