Rate limits on raw endpoints

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 top bar, select Menu > Admin.
  2. On the left sidebar, select Settings > Network.
  3. Expand Performance optimization.

For example, requests over 300 per minute to https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-foss/raw/master/app/controllers/application_controller.rb 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 commit and 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.
