TRTH REST API - Data Extraction limit

Hi,

Can you please help me with below queries ?

1) What is the limit on number of RICs that can be passed when I do -

#ThomsonReuters.Dss.Api.Extractions.ExtractionRequests

2) The reason I am asking this question is because I tried to download intraday per minute history data for 6 RICs one-by-one and it took me almost 20 minutes to get the data downloaded and saved in csv file.

3) Can you also please provide the list of all valid ContentFieldNames.

4) Is it possible to have multiple sessions running at the same time with same user Id and password but different session token? I am trying to see if multiple session can help in download pace?

5) I am planning to use multiprocessing in python to see if I can have several concurrent processes running all together to download the pace.

6) Also If you have any other detail which can help me to work on download performance and pace

Hello,
