Lets say I have a DMZ device taht performs rate limiting (load balancing, traffic balancing, etc.)
If I balance HTTP messages (API management), the I will try to set it to something like 200 / sec. taht should limit the "messages per second" to 200 / sec.
What I am unclear about is TCP or UDP
If I try to limit the rate of TCP or UDP, would that only limit the packet per second, as opposed to messages per second?
