API limit per second which is 50/second for FREE includes cached requests


(Bhavesh Shukla) #1

Hi, I can see 50 API requests/second for FREE account.

  1. Does this 50 limit includes API calls which are similar e.g. no change in API URL?

  2. Does this limit includes API calls which are cached already?

  3. Do we have some plan there to extend API calls limit to 500 APIs/second? If yes then how much it will cost?

  4. if there 500 request/second and this plan handles 50 request/second, will remaining 450 API request return timeout response ? or they will wait until they will be successfully completed?

Please let me know response. I am new to backendless.

Hi Bhavesh,

Backendless does not use plan system for limits. You can buy upper limit for API-calls in section Marketplace->App Management->Additional 10 req/sec. You can try standalone Backednless version without api-call limitations but only one instance is allowed.
Each api call counts.

Regards,

Denys

It includes all API calls.

2. Does this limit includes API calls which are cached already?

The calculation of the limit includes all API calls (cached or otherwise)

3. Do we have some plan there to extend API calls limit to 500 APIs/second? If yes then how much it will cost?

Yes, please see Denys’ response above.

4. if there 500 request/second and this plan handles 50 request/second, will remaining 450 API request return timeout response ? or they will wait until they will be successfully completed?

Any requests which go above and beyond the current limit will be rejected by the server with an error.
