Home > TraceParts for Developers > API call limit


TraceParts web services supports millions of calls every month. To provide the best quality of service, we limit the API call usage.

Call limit

TraceParts has a 3,000 call limit for one sliding hour. This limit is for the entire set of web services linked to an API key.
TraceParts can offer support for some tips in order to reduce the number of calls. Depending on your needs, some web services could be better to use than other ones.


API call limit response

JSON Output

A sample HTTP request is shown below, displaying the rate limit.

"messageError":"Rate limiting maximum is reached"


XML Output

Same example as above.

<MessageError>Rate limiting maximum is reached</MessageError>

Increasing the limit

If you consider that you need to extend the call limit, after checking your current usage or the needs of your future projects, TraceParts has the eventual possibility to increase the call limit.
