Consul limits : http_max_conns_per_client in Docker container

Hi Team,

we are getting below exception in our application connecting to dockerized consul image of version 1.9.0

com.orbitz.consul.ConsulException: Consul request failed with status [429]: Your IP is issuing too many concurrent connections, please rate limit your calls

Pls help.

Hi @vrr6

You will have to configure the http_max_conns_per_client configuration for your Consul agent to allow more connections from your client.

Hi @Ranjandas ,
does this limit apply to blocking queries? I have more than 200 goroutines watching updates for different consul services. But I’ve never seen errors like this before. We are using consul 1.8
