Subject: [hybrid] throttled posting - is there a crapflood throttle setting?
Date: Fri, Aug 17, 2012 09:49

I am running: ircd-hybrid 1:7.2.2.dfsg.2-6.2 on Debian stable on a intranet.

Apologies in advance for a newbie question - yes I have read the
INSTALL and README and searched for ircd-hybrid documentation and
irdc configuration in general. I think that my problem is that the
terminology is unfamiliar, and so I am not certain which search
terms are appropriate.

On our intranet, when a user posts several (e.g. 20 ) lines of text
in a single post, they are delivered one line at a time, with a 1
second delay between each line.

I assume this is some form of 'crapflood' throttle / protection. I
would like to reduce / remove the throttle, or raise the threshold
at which it kicks in.

I have the following settings:

default_floodcount = 1000;

client_flood = 2000;

Any help / pointer greatly appreciated.



PS We mostly use ChatZilla in XULrunner clients - I have also
checked to see if this was a client setting, without any luck.
