A rate limit is the number of API calls an app or a user can make within a given time period. If this limit is exceeded or if time limits are exceeded, API requests will fail.
Awario API has a rate limit per IP and a rate limit per token.
The rate limit per IP (100 requests per second) is the total number of requests for an IP address.
The rate limit per token (300 requests per minute) is the total number of requests for one API key (i.e. for an account). This limit allows a user to call multiple methods simultaneously to collect all the necessary data (get the list of alerts and pull all statistics for an alert).
If a limit is reached, the response will contain an error code.
