Protect SFG for event flood caused by large volume GET requests of very small fiels
When the File Gateway is hit by a very high amount of GET requests to download small files will cause an event flood. As these events are tracked in the visibility db, this may cause the system to "hang" - all threads blocked - as the visibility db cannot keep up with the incoming events.
Configuring the visiblity db to track less details / increase the visibility queue help to reduce the effect of such an event flood.
But it would be more secure to be able to protect the File Gateway in a more general manner from such incoming traffic which is quite easily to write up and in the end cause a "System Down". SFG should be made more robust to protect against DoS attacks.
