NetBalancer 9.11 With Packet LimitsThu, 26-Oct-2017
It's been a long time since we added new functional features to NetBalancer and today is the day: NetBalancer 9.11 can limit the maximum number of packets per second that can be sent or received by a connection, process or rule.
Also two new columns were added for download rates in packets per second and respectively upload rates.
The same for rules, beside the traditional traffic rates are also shown the packet current rates, as on the image below.
The packet limit feature can be used as a simple but quite effective solution against unsophisicated DDOS attacks,
when your website or home-hosted game server is flooded with lots of DDOS packets, just limit the maximum amount of
packets allowed per connection are you're done.
Of course, this is not the only use, many other use cases are valid too, like slow network testing, various connectivity simulations, etc.
