Requests & Limits
The default rate limit for requests is 50 requests/sec set via the
default_api_rate_limitvariable. This applies to global requests which do not originate from a whitelisted address or do not use an API key.
- Individual API key: An API key can be created by the user in the My Account section (currently available on select instances). Requests made using an individual API key are limited to 50 req/sec but are not shared by other users.
- Static API key: A per instance API key (note this functionality was created prior to individual API keys and may have limited utility) can be managed via the
- IP Whitelist: A default limit can be applied to whitelisted IPs via the
API_RATE_LIMIT_WHITELISTED_IPSvariable. This can be used to assign custom limits to prioritized applications.
