So... if we are going to place this type of control in the system we
need to build a better tracking system for number of requests so that we
can effectively shut down abusers. The question is whether that's a part
of NTP or NTPQ as resident agent type addition.
The idea is that throttling is available with most networking models and
should be with NTP too. We should be able to set the maximum number of
requests a system uses from the service from within the reference port
model. That would mean the addition of some type of uses-per-period
service and the control to integrate that into DROP or "SAY NO TO
BOOBOO" type controls.
Just a thought.
