503 Slow Down Response

DigitalOcean Spaces


Since a couple of days I’m receiving 503 Slow Down Response when dealing with your Spaces. I’m using Spaces as a Backup Service to daily backup my production applications. Only one applications out of 14 is causing this problems.

Error executing "ListObjects" on "https://****"; AWS HTTP error: Server error: `GET https://*******.ch%2F&encoding-type=url` resulted in a `503 Slow Down` response: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <Error> <Code>SlowDown</Code> <Message>Please reduce your request rate.</Message> (truncated...) SlowDown (server): Please reduce your request rate. - <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <Error> <Code>SlowDown</Code> <Message>Please reduce your request rate.</Message> <RequestId></RequestId> </Error>

There is no way I hitting any max. Limit of Requests. I track it and receive it all the time.

Any idea?

Best regards

Hello stanbarrows,

The main reason to cause that maybe is the spaces in FRA region is down in your time.Digitalocean has reported it and soon be fixed.Now you can try again and see if it works well.and,it is always a good habit to see the status page.

Have a nice day.
