Rate Limits

Lightstep enforces rate limits on our API endpoints. You’ll receive an http status code 429 error message if these limits are exceeded.

Lightstep also returns headers to display information on how close your usage is to your limits. If you receive a 429 error message, review the information in these headers to determine when you can try again.

  • X-RateLimit-Limit: Number of requests remaining in a period.
  • X-RateLimit-Remaining: Number of requests left in the current time period.
  • X-RateLimit-Reset: Time (in seconds) until the next reset.

If you need your limits extended beyond the levels described below, please contact your Lightstep Customer Success representative.

All API rate limits listed below are based on your current plan and are per organization.
