How does rate limiting work in traefik

I want to understand how ratelimiting works? Lets say I have a HA k8 cluster I have currently setup traefik as a daemonset with kubernetes crd. If I set a middleware to perform ratelimiting, will it look for requests at a perticular node level or will it be a distributed ratelimiting across all the worker nodes?

Hi @madeinindiadot

We have a very detailed glossary page on rate limiting that may help clarify how it works.

It is not distributed as that would require coordination (state) between instances.
