Rate limits

All accounts, by default, have a preconfigured set of thresholds, or limits, to manage capacity and prevent abuse of the system. Rate limits, a kind of limit that the system recognizes, are thresholds that are reset after a certain amount of time passes. Rate limits are processed by the Repose service.

If the default limits are too low for your particular application, contact Rackspace Support to request an increase. All requests require reasonable justification.

Rate limits are specified in terms of both a human-readable wildcard URI and a machine-processable regular expression. The regular expression boundary matcher ^ takes effect after the root URI path.
