API Rate Limit Throttling Duration


As it’s not often discussed and I couldn’t seem to find anything in the community, documentation or otherwise, at what point is an API throttle lifted if you have not hit your daily limit but you did, for a moment, hit the 25 calls-per-second limit?

The response headers detail when the quota will be reset, but does that mean your application could be out-of-action for an entire day if you went over the per-second limit for a moment?

If you go over the 25 calls per second, the throttle should reset the next second and allow 25 more calls.
