Http 429/Too many requests

Postby erw » 04 Mar 2017, 17:24

Hi,

Recently I set up tt-rss and everything goes fine except one thing:
I need to fetch feeds from one website but couple different RSS and sometimes there are HTTP 429(too many requests) for some feeds.

Is there some kind of workaround?

So you want to answer without reading question first?

As I mentioned - it's not often it's just lots of feeds from one provider.

Well, since you've supplied literally zero useful details on the actual problem, it's hard to offer a given solution.

If it's something like fetching every four hours, you could try to stagger them by hand, by disabling updates on some and manually re-enabling an hour later, or what-have-you, in order to satisfy the provider's rate limit. That should work indefinitely unless you're that close to the limit, but if your server ever goes down for an extended period and can't update, you'll have to set it up all over again.

You could also potentially dig around and try to change the internal update scheduling, or set up a cron job to manually run the update script every hour, or however long you needed to wait between fetches, in order to enforce your own rate limit that way. Alternatively, you could lower the number of feeds that could be updated per daemon execution, if we're talking an X requests in Y minutes sort of thing.

I don't believe plugins would be of much use here, but I could very well be wrong.

I suppose you could get really fancy and write your own proxy script of sorts, which kept track of your own requests and enforced a rate limit before allowing the update to proceed as scheduled. That's starting to get a little excessive and convoluted, though.

But these are all pretty much common sense things.

Regardless, I'd recommend mellowing the hell out and actually providing some useful information before you get your ass banned. You're the one not being remotely helpful here. We don't know the site in question to get any answers for ourselves, we don't know the rate limit you're trying to conform to, we don't know how often you're actually updating, we don't know the actual scope of how many feeds we're talking about here, we don't know a goddamn thing and you're expecting miracles to come out of our asses to satisfy your entitlement.

That what I thought.

It looks like there is quite enough info to answer the question:
1 provider, multiple feeds - HTTP 429 in result. What else do you need? How does it matter what provider is it or what the limit is?
Problem is clear - too many requests since tt updates them very quickly without pause between requests.

I hope simple sleep should help.

C'mon guys, I expected like 2-3 more.
But I should admit @JustAMacUser - that was incredible, like lots of words, really lots.

I'm torn, ban him and delete the thread, or move it to the comedy bistro?

this sure was a thread. idk about its bistro worthiness though.

also not sure why op got all salty re: his obviously torrent feeds *shocked gasps in the audience*.

technically i guess in this situation there's no provided solution. other than running some kind of adhoc proxy like suggested above. i'm not sure if something like that could be implemented with the way updating works and whether it would be a good idea.
