The AccessLimitFilter allows you to control and limit the number of simultaneous requests run by the same resource. The limit attribute indicates the maximum number of simultaneous requests that the target resource is willing to accept. The timeout attribute can be used to specify how long a request should wait before being elected to be run by the resource. When this timeout expires, the filter sends back a reply to the browser with an appropriate error message.
