http://serverfault.com – I'm frequently getting 503 Service Unavailable when I have limit_req turned on. On my logs: [error] 22963#0: *70136 limiting requests, excess: 1.000 by zone "blitz", client: 64.xxx.xxx.xx, server: dat.com, request: "GET /id/85 HTTP/1.1", host: "dat.com" My nginx configuration: limit_req_zone $binary_remote_addr zone=blitz:60m rate=5r/s; limit_req zone=blitz; How do I resolve this issue. Isn't 60m already big enough? All my static files are hosted on a amazon s3. (HowTos)
