HTTP vs TCP vs UDP

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?

Thanks

Http messages might need to be split over multiple packets.

Limiting the rate of the packets will affect the number of messages that can be processed.
