I've been running my API fine for some time now and when I added another function I realized I was being told to backoff. I only run my API once a night and don't really pull that much data. I have a registered key that I use as well. It returns the proper counts and I was less than 1000 out of 10000 attempts in when it initially told me to backoff. Now, it tells me every single time to backoff for 54 seconds, regardless. I also noticed that my APP statistics shows no data, even though I have confirmed my API key is working appropriately. Not sure if this is related or not.
I guess my question is, how do I find out why I am being throttled on my API?
Below is a sample url request and result:
I'm following the backoff rules and sleeping for ( backoff + 5 ) seconds. Adding +5 just to be safe. But it doesn't reduce or change on each and every API query now. Almost as if I've been tagged as spamming or an internal blacklist.
