In RKD, The limit of requests per second is based on the ID of the application or the ip from where the request is made?
Please see updates from the RKD team below:
Question: Is the request limit also based on the service?
Answer: Yes, the RKD API throttling limit will vary from service to service.
Question: Why sometimes errors show that the request limit is 4 and sometimes 200?
Answer: Throttling limit will vary based on service and user.
Example: The default user limit for FilingsRetrievalV3 and EstimatesIBESV2 service was 4req/sec. when user send more that 4 req/sec then the user will receive "The maximum number of request for you application ID, 4 per second" error.
The "Token can not be empty." error message means the Token was not provided in the Request.
The user limit of each service are the following:
Note: The throttling limit of requests per second is based on the ApplicationID.
The services used:
TokenManagement, Quotes, TimeSeries, Fundamentals, News, OnlineReports.
We have an application running on several servers with different ip, sometimes we detect errors such as:
"The maximum number of request for you application ID, 4 per secod"
"Token can not be empty."
I understand that the first error is due to exceeding the limit of requests that are made from all servers.
and the second error is because when exceeding the number of requests the token could not be obtained.
Is the request limit also based on the service?
