API Rate Limit?

I'm wondering if there is some type of rate limit or maximum requests from a specific IP.
 
Recently, some of my automation has stopped working and a little bit into the script, requests just start timing out, though this was working previously.
 
Is there something I should be doing differently?

It would still be useful to know if there's such a limit.

I can confirm API calls have slowed-down significantly.  My Powershell script that pulls endpoint info to find duplicate entries went from taking less than 5 minutes to 15.  I figured it was simply increased server load from the new Labtech integration plugin.

Hi @,
 
Are you seeing an error response of "Too Many Requests?" If not, there may be something else we need to look into. Please open a ticket with our support team if you continue to see latency issues.

@,
The PowerShell script in question isn't outputting any errors, it just takes 3-4 times longer than it used to.  I rewrote the script to re-request the token occasionally, which took care of the problem.

FWIW today my script audit script finished in 3 minutes flat!  They may have scaled-up the backend some in the last 2 weeks or so.

I use C# API and if I run the app to often for testing I get this “too many requests” exception after a while. I do use task/await in parallel for about 500 sites downloading site list in a synchronous call in a separate call and downloading  endpoints list for each site(over 10K total for all sites) in an asynchronous calls.
