I know that in Bloomberg there are daily limits (max 500,000 hits) and monthly limits (max 7000 unique securities). Something similar should apply also here:
"Every application using Eikon API Proxy must have an Application ID. An Application ID allows Thomson Reuters to monitor data usage by applications, enforce data limits and throttle any offending applications."
A) What are exact limits per day/month?
B) If two applications are developed on the same same terminal with the same Eikon user ID/password, is there a limit per machine?
C) How is it possible to check data usage and see whether the limit is approaching?
There are no daily or monthly data retrieval quotas in Eikon. To protect the backend we throttle the requests you submit. In addition, if we determine that the amount of data you consume does not constitute "personal use" as stated in your contract with Thomson Reuters, we may reach out to you and discuss your data consumption needs and suggest products that best fit your data usage. But unlike in Bloomberg there's no limit after reaching which you automatically cannot submit any further data requests.
This answer is no longer up to date, right? Considering the info on this page: https://developers.refinitiv.com/eikon-apis/eikon-data-api/docs?content=49692&type=documentation_item
It now seems too restrictive that I am considering my license. It makes quant works very tedious to the point I have to spend more time in writing data requests than to do the actual analysis.
Refinitiv: Please reconsider reasonable data limits that are in line with Bloomberg and other competitors.
Thank you in advance.
