Rate Limiting Analytics

Analytics for rate limiting shows information about the number of requests that match a rule and were served a 429 error, which our rate limiter delivers to clients that exceed a limit. This status code is not Cloudflare-specific, and is used by some origins also.

At present, the Non-Rate-Limited requests are requests that did not include a 429 in the response, including requests that do not match any rate limiting rule.

This view will eventually show requests that match a rule and were not blocked to allow users to more easily calculate their bill:

Simulated rule actions are not currently tracked, but will be in the future.

Enterprise customers can additionally see a breakdown of blocked requests per location in their status code analytics view, as 429 statuses indicate that a rule blocked a request (but it also includes 429s from the origin if your origin returns them).
