Subscription plans in Floodgate come with different request limits. The higher the subscription plan the more requests are allowed.
What is a Request?
A request is a call to the Floodgate CDN which is serving your feature flag configurations for each of your application environments. Every time a request is made it counts towards your request limit.
Lets say you have an application with two environments. You have configured the SDK in the Test environment to request every 1 minute and the SDK in the production environment to request every 1 hour.
Test Environment Requests per Day
1 request per minute x 60 minutes per hour x 24 hours in a day = 1440 requests per day.
Production Environment Requests per Day
1 request per hour x 24 hours in a day = 24 requests per day.
Total Requests per Month
1440 (Test Environment Requests) + 24 (Production Environment Requests) = 1464 1464 x 30 days = 43,920 requests per month.
Making Too Many Requests
If you happen to make more requests than you plan permits, we will not stop serving your flag configuration. You account will function as normal. However our sales team will be in touch to discuss how we can better fulfill your requirements going forward.
