Hi there! I’ve been using the safegraph API to query core places and monthly patterns using batch_lookup.
I made a minor miscalculation in the Sys.sleep() I wrote into my R script to avoid hitting the published rate limits (which is listed as 100 requests per second for batch, 1000 requests per minute for non-batch https://docs.safegraph.com/reference#places-api-overview-new).
I’ve fixed the sleeps so I definitely won’t violate these limits: 2 second sleep between batch_lookup requests, and a 60 second sleep every 800 total records returned from batch requests.
But for some reason I now can’t make a single request without getting a 429 “Too Many Requests” Error. Should I make a new API key and try again? Am I in rate limit jail for an unknown period of time? Thanks!
