Lulu Developer Blog
Last week we released a feature on our developer portal that we are very excited about. Since we released our APIs, we have been able to monitor how you, our developers, are using them. We found that a key element that was missing was the ability for each of you to monitor your own usage. Well now you can! If you go to the "My Account" page, there are a number of tools that you can use to monitor your API usage. For each key, there is a "View Report" link, go ahead and click on that.
Each API has a rate limit, that controls how many calls you can make per second and per day. This protects the APIs and ensures that one developer doesn't accidentally take the system down for everybody else. At the top of the page, you can see how many of the 1000 calls per day you have used:
After looking at what you are doing today, you can also look at the calls made over a couple of different time frames. The goal behind these graphs is to let you see how many calls you are making per day. If you find that you are coming close to the limit on the API, let us know. We can increase your limit if we need to.
We hope that you enjoy having access to all of this data about how you use our APIs!
