Add IPv6 address for to the ratelimit exemptions
Closed, ResolvedPublic


This is an update to T110235.

The Wiki Ed Dashboard makes edits from a Linode server. We previously set up an IP rate limit exemption for the IPv4 address of the server,

We are still hitting rate limits sometimes because they come from the IPv6 address instead: 2600:3c03::f03c:91ff:fe08:7973

Please add that IPv6 address to the ratelimit exemptions. Thanks much!

@Rageross Could you confirm you aren't affected by this rate throttle anymore from the IPv6?

@Dereckson: we just had a backlog of queued edits, and we I restarted the processing job they all ran at once. None of them got ratelimited, so it looks like this worked. Thanks!
