Question

rate limiting on Spaces?

Hi - I was trying to run some basic performance tests on Spaces recently and after a certain level, the requests were getting rejected with 403s (sample below). Could someone indicate what rate limits are enforced on Spaces (open HTTP connections, max API calls, etc)? Thanks

Digital Ocean. I absolutely love you. BUT, this problem is now unacceptable and inexcusable. We will be moving five separate Spaces servers with over 50 spaces to another provider. We will also be advising 20+ of our clients to make the same move.

You have completely fallen down on the job here, and I can no longer afford to waste hundreds of $$$ of my valuable time dealing with this stupidity. It may be time to start blogging to spread the word on what a failure this is.

Having the same issue as jborg.

I’m looking at my logs, there is no way I’m hitting 200 requests per second, maybe 200 per minute. I’ve effectively been blocked from using a service I’m paying for with no warning.

In the 3 years I was using S3 I never had this issue, even when when under extreme load.

This is unacceptable, I don’t think Spaces is ready for prime time usage based on this.

Sharding your requests across multiple Spaces? How is that a solution? Its supposed to be infinite, and scalable.

I’m seeing “503 Slow Down”. Some communication on this would be good…
