Hi Michal,

Thanks for reaching out - the rate limits for using Compass's Metrics API is 100 request per minute. Does this meet your use case or are you looking to make more request per minute? 


Thanks for you answer. From my experience if you have many metrics (10+) and many services, then sending data periodically can easily exceed this limit.

Hi Michal,

Could you please give me some more insight into how many metrics are being sent to how many components? For example is there 1 metric being sent to 100 components every minute? Or is 100 metrics being sent to 1 component every minute? Metric values are stored are stored once per hour on a given component. You can send multiple metric values for a single component, but we only save the latest one for a given hour. We are currently in the process of updating the documentation on DAC.

Can you also confirm if you are using the REST API or the GraphQL endpoint? (i.e. using `gateway/api/compass/v1/metrics` or `gateway/api/graphql`)

I can increase the rate limit to 200 requests per minute, but I would like to make sure that this will give you enough capacity before you hit the limit again. 


The application has rate limiting enabled
