Stick tables, more tables or a better option

Hi all,

I have a bit of an issue, is there a way to have a bigger stick table (longer expiry) and then deny based on matches in a specific time window… rather than me needing multiple tables for 1 minute, 5 minute, 1 hour time windows etc.

Else, if there isn’t and more stick tables is the solution, are there any packages available that allow a larger number of stick tables so that I don’t have to maintain a custom build from source?

Any help would be awesome,


I feel like I’m just the lazy idiot and haven’t read enough yet, seems the way I’m using stick tables is outdated and can probably be optimised… might start there first.

If anyone can provide some info regarding to some pretty advanced rate-limited solutions and examples of stick tables being used in action, I’d be super keen to see them.

Seems that while I’ve learnt a-lot I’m still back to banging my head on this one…

Is there a way to have multiple time period limits but driven from a single stick-table?

Ie. rather than using the expiry of the table, use a lookup from the table data based on entries that fall within (cur_time-60seconds)->cur_time…
