Rate limits govern a single user or device in order to ensure the health and accessibility of an API. In this context, rate limiting can be seen as a form of security.
SLASCONE's rate limiting is based on the number of requests allowed from each client's IP address over a period of time. This reduces the impact of clients accidentally or intentionally sending large amounts of traffic to the API, such as during a retry storm.
In SLASCONE, we employ constraints not to restrict you, but to drive optimal API integration, which ultimately ensures optimal system performance.
API V2 LIMITS
Since SLASCONE is a database-centric application, it enforces rate limits on the endpoints that create persistent data. These are typically heartbeat events.
RATE LIMIT PER IP*
TOTAL RATE LIMIT PER LICENSE/TOKEN
*This limit does not apply for SaaS applications.
*This limit assumes that each client/token has a unique IP.
The default rate limits indicate the maximum values that a typical integration should reach. These limits are meant to ensure optimal system performance. However, these limits can be easily customized, in order to facilitate your scenario.
