Summary0006451: consider strategies for rate limiting requests in exchange and merchant
DescriptionCurrently it is easily possible to DoS the exchange or merchant by just doing certain requests for the same resource in a busy loop. This will result in database conflicts, also killing other transactions.

We need to think about strategies to prevent this.

Note that this doesn't have to be a malicious attack, these scenarios easily happen accidentally (as we witnessed with the PoS).
TagsNo tags attached.

Looks like I actually misinterpreted what's going on here based on the logs.
