The `rate-limit` node. Just wanting to check

I am wanting to limit the amount of stuff saved to a log file.

The readings are taken about every 6 seconds. (About 10 per minute.)

I am happy with 1.

I hacked a flow with the gate node (non-standard) but then saw the rate-limit node.

So if I read the info correctly I would set max messages per topic to 1 and interval to 60000 and tick the drop overflow messages.

It looks to be working. But I would like to confirm it before I go too far down the wrong road.

what is the rate-limit node ? Why not use the built in delay node set to rate-limit. then set it to

Yeah, ok. I was looking in my palette and saw it.

I didn't equate delay with rate limit.

Shall check that node instead.
