Rate Limit

Channel360 is subject to rate limiting to maintain system stability and prevent abuse, spam, denial-of-service attacks, and related concerns. The rate limit for Channel360 is set at 10 messages per second. If this limit is exceeded, Channel360 will respond with a 429 Too Many Requests HTTP status code. Our aim is to establish rate limits that are sufficiently high to accommodate normal usage patterns while minimizing the likelihood of encountering limits. However, occasional spikes in usage may occur, making it unavoidable to encounter a rate limit.

To ensure uninterrupted service and prevent production outages, we recommend implementing 429 retry logic using exponential backoff and jitter when making API calls to Channel360. This approach involves progressively increasing the waiting time between retries, incorporating randomness to avoid synchronization issues. By following this retry strategy, you can handle rate limit responses effectively and maintain a smooth integration with Channel360.
