[Pdns-users] Rate limiting IPs or another protection against abuses

I have an issue where several IPs are making thousands of MBOXFW requests.

This overloads our Mysql backend and crashes our server.

I tried to block them manually in our firewall, but there are lots of
different IPs.

Does Powerdns offers a way to rate limit IPs? Or is there another solution
to this issue?
