 Hi Remi,

Thanks for the quick feedback, it's really appreciated.

My first idea was to exclude domains when setQTypeRate matched,
Your explanation is clear, I cannot.

Here is my alternative to do that.

           -- list of client ip to block during 60s
addAction(blacklistedIPs:slice(), RCodeAction(DNSRCode.REFUSED))

local function blacklistIP(dq)
        blacklistedIPs:add(dq.remoteaddr, 60)
        return DNSAction.Refused

-- list of trusted domains where the rate limiting is not applied
trusted_domains = newSuffixMatchNode()

-- Rate limiting for TXT and CNAME qtypes only
addAction(AndRule({ MaxQPSIPRule(5, 32, 64, 5),
OrRule({QTypeRule(DNSQType.TXT), QTypeRule(DNSQType.CNAME))}),
NotRule(SuffixMatchNodeRule(trusted_domains, true)) }),
SetTagAction('dynamic_block', 'match'))
addAction(TagRule('dynamic_block'), DnstapLogAction("dynamic_block", fstl))
addAction(TagRule('dynamic_block'), LuaAction(blacklistIP))
