Rate Limiting


API throttling

Throttling allows you to limit the number of successful hits to an API during a given period, typically in cases such as the following:

  • To protect your APIs from common types of security attacks such as certain types of denial of service (DOS) attacks
  • To regulate traffic according to infrastructure availability
  • To make an API, application, or a resource available to a consumer at different levels of service, usually for monetization purpose
