[erlang-questions] Terminology for Rate Limiting

For a some function which is the following:
  - begin with request count at 0
  - check current request count
  - if current current is less than allowed requests
    - spin up a new process
    - way for some given time and reset count to 0

This is a naive approach to rate limiting, but is there common terminology
for something like this?

I am interested in less naive approaches to rate limiting requests as well
if anyone is willing to point in the right direction.
