Response Processors: Slow Connection Processor

The slow connection processor is designed to introduce large delays in requests issued by malicious traffic without impacting the performance of legitimate users. There are no actual triggers for this processor; it is a form of response.

Note: If default minimum and maximum delay times for the Slow Connection Processor are set to a value greater than the Backend Response Timeout (Configuration > Proxy/Backends > Connection Timeout), the connection can timeout, resulting in a 403 error.
