Meters limit the number of queries that can run based on the time interval for all queries in the system. Available time intervals are per second, per minute, and per hour. The default time interval is set to per minute.

Use Meters to control the number and types of query requests that you want processed and use the state matrix to indicate under which conditions you want certain limits with time unit to apply. For example, you can create a meter to:
  • Limit a specific user to run no more than ten queries per minute.
  • Limit a specific department to run no more than four queries per hour.

The following tabs on the Meters view display all meters information for a ruleset from different perspectives.
