Rate Limiting

Rate Limiting is a key feature of any data integration product. Often these products make the mistake of assuming they are the only workload consuming the rate limits, and simply burn through the rate limit until they are told by the app that they've exceeded limits.

This can cause unintended impact on other (perhaps more critical) workloads.

Omnata's rate limiting support acknowledges that different workloads have different levels of importance, and sometimes you need to restrict particular syncs to stay under a certain request rate.

Each Omnata Plugin is able to define "categories" of rate limits which match particular HTTP requests. The rate at which the plugin is allowed to make HTTP requests to a particular category, can be overridden at the connection level and also at the sync level.
