Limiting detected at target

Message ID
Limiting detected at target
Rate limiting is detected at the target host.
  • Check if the target is behind a rate-limiting firewall.
  • If the target is an Avaya IP handset, disregard this message when evaluating network performance.
This message is usually generated when testing to Avaya IP phones. These phones typically have anti-DDOS ICMP filtering. The rate limiting seen here is also similar to other forms of rate limiting, like the type associated with firewalls.
Possible secondary messages
  • 'Typical of Avaya IP phone'
  • 'Loss during test not indicative of actual network response'
  • 'May be due to a device like a firewall'
