CircleCI NuGet


A rate limiting library for .Net projects.

Currently provides a middleware:

  • AspNet Core

Available rate limiting strategies:

  • Leaky Bucket

When a client exceeds their request limit, a 429 Too Many Requests status will be returned.


The middleware should be attached to the application as high in the order as possible, to intercept requests early.

For example, to configure the rate limiter to allow 4 requests per second, with a maximum of 100 requests, see below:

var rateLimitingConfiguration = new LeakyBucketConfiguration
  MaxRequests = 100,
  LeakRate = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(1),
  LeakAmount = 4,
  IdentityProvider = new CustomIdentityProvider() // If not set, defaults to using the remote address

app.UseRateLimiting(new LeakyBucketRateLimitStrategy(rateLimitingConfiguration));

By default client requests will be identified using the remote address of the request. To implement a custom identity provider, implement the IClientIdentityProvider interface and pass it in to the configuration.
