I would personally like it off, since it appears to me to offer a false sense of security for the reasons mentioned in that review (doesn't stop DOS, doesn't work across processes/API nodes).

Even though, I would recommend/think before its turned off that there should be a detailed document on what to replace it with since even though it does provide a minimal rate limiting capabilities, it does provide more than zero. So there should be some docs or thought put into a replacement and explanation on how to use said replacement/s.

Hi all

I have proposed a patch to disable per-user rate limiting by default: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/34821/. And on Russell's request  does anyone care or prefer this to be enabled by default?

Here is some more context:

Earlier rate limiting discussion: http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/openstack/operators/28599
Related bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/tripleo/+bug/1178529
rate limiting is per process, and doesn't act as expected in a multi-process environment: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/36516/
