A few months ago, my app was at a huge peak in requests that my api could not handle in time (the api is proxied through cloudflare as well). This caused cloudflare to actually rate limit/deny all my applications on that domain for a minute. Now, I’m not 100% sure why this happened, but I am wondering if there is something I can do with cloudflare (either settings or purchase the Pro plan?) to catch this issue before it happens again.
I am viewing the article here:
and I believe it was: “Error 1200: Cache connection limit”
I’ve been trying to optimize my server to the best of its abilities, but I am now wondering if someone knows of a better option.
Has this happened to you? Does anyone have any suggestions or know if the Pro plan increases cloudflare’s limiting?
