Rate limits on raw endpoints (FREE SELF)

Introduced in GitLab 12.2.

This setting defaults to 300 requests per minute, and allows you to rate limit the requests to raw endpoints:

  1. On the left sidebar, at the bottom, select Admin Area.
  2. Select Settings > Network.
  3. Expand Performance optimization.

For example, requests over 300 per minute to are blocked. Access to the raw file is released after 1 minute.

Rate limits on raw endpoints

This limit is:

  • Applied independently per project, per file path.
  • Not applied per IP address.
  • Active by default. To disable, set the option to 0.

Requests over the rate limit are logged into auth.log.
