I am very enjoying looking at the potential of the Edge Worker solution you guys have.
One nagging question I have is, how can I prevent myself from running up a bill of $100’s serving non-genuine requests?
To test this question was worth asking, I ran 90k apache bench requests from a vm against a test setup I made yesterday.
I have looked at the bill today and see billable usage of 90k requests.
I’d love to leverage workers - I am just concerned the pricing is actually a bit of a liability as i could run up a large bill as the result of an attack that sailed > genuine < ddos.
Is rate limiting the suggested mitigation?
