4. Throttling

There are certain endpoints in MetaDefender Cloud that are being throttled:

Our throttling mechanism allows up to:

  • 10 requests/minute for free users

  • 100 requests/minute for paid users

To the above endpoints. If a user exceeds the allowed values, the requests will be blocked, and an HTTP response code of 429 will be returned.


In such cases, please limit the number of requests sent per minute.
