Ratelimit and period

Hi there,

i wanted to try the rate limiting feature of traefik (2.4.2) but if i define a period like shown in the docs i get errors from the traefik log.

    average = 3
    burst = 1
    period = 1m

Error occurred during watcher callback: Near line 22 (last key parsed 'http.middlewares.test-ratelimit.rateLimit'): expected a top-level item to end with a newline, comment, or EOF, but got 'm' instead providerName=file

I don't understand whats wrong here...

Hi @lachnerd

Is it just missing a newline at the end of your period = 1m line ?

nope, checked it again.

error occurs also with newline.


I might try this myself in a little while.


Try quoting it "1m". It is not valid toml as it is. Tried it with python toml.decoder and an online parser.

"1m" worked for me.

with "1m" on the period traefik accepts the configuration (although the period is not shown in the UI), thx
