Add a value to the counter associated with a key in a named series.

Only the current window is affected.


  • name of the series.
  • the value to be added. It can be positive or negative.
  • the key for which the counts is desired. For series of type "cidr", key is of the form "ip/mask". to use the remote IP of current session, caller can pass in "ac" instead.
  • accept construct. This is the alternative for passing in an IP for cidr series.
  • if the type is cidr_ipv6, this determines the prefix to match. Useful for mitigating DoS attacks from a single system cycling addresses.

Return Values

0 if successful, -1 if error.

**Configuration Change. ** This feature is available starting from Momentum 3.1.
