Throttling Requests

Hey! :wave:
I’m looking for a good solution to throttle messages when graylog is flooded.
We have a situation where our message per second are usually around 2k, but sometimes we enable more logging for a small period of time and then messages can get to around 900k per second.
When that happens sometimes the graylog pods crash and take a long time to restart.
Anyone know a good solution to limit the amount of messages and discard the rest? I don’t mind losing data (even like 90% of the logs as long as the pods wont crash)
I’m using GELF UDP inputm running on kubernetes with 5 graylog pods
Thank you :slight_smile:
