    I notice you can set a rate limit for logging firewall events, but is it also possible to set a rate limit for rule matching from the web GUI?

    For example, I’d like to make my system responsive to pings at no more than 1 per second on ETH01, dropping further ICMP ECHO_REQUEST packets sent at any rate faster than that.



    Sorry, it’s not possible from the web interface.
    I will include this feature in one of the next releases.


    You can also limit ICMP traffic by creating QoS rule for ICMP and combine it with maximum ICMP echo-request size in your Firewall.

    For instance common icmp echo-request size from windows workstation is 32+28=60B. If you create QoS class with maximum speed of 600B/s=4800bit/s, then you will allow only 10 requests/second.
