What will be rate-limit of two different applications with two valid API keys from same IP?

  • Will it be only one of the Key will use? so maximum 10k?
  • Will rate-limit be 20k?
  • When one key API key reached 10k, the other one will be use automatically? so total 20k?
  • Will they have seperate box for 10k limit for each Key?

An IP has a request quota, an application key is used to determine that quota.

In answer to your question, 10k.

If I'm not mistaken, you will only be allowed 10,000 requests from an IP address no matter how many keys you use.
