Wish for: Auto-Block IP from flooding events

We have Sentry SDK deployed on a website.

We don’t know why, but our Sentry account is being flooded by mysterious exception events, the same event, at rates of thousands per hour, all from the same IP.

This has happened 3 times, from 3 different IPs.

It’s unclear what these “users” are. Some bad crawler or bot?

Either way:

  • Spike Protection wasn’t activated
  • While I can add an IP to filter manually, I wish I could say, “If the same IP sends more than 60 events a minute for 3 hours, just block them, especially if it’s the same event.”
