uCMDB REST-API should limit the number of requests per session not globally

Dear Micro Focus

As an industry standard every tools want to consume REST-APIs. We are planning to extensively make use of the uCMDB REST-API but recently detect the API limitation of 15 requests / second.

With the current implementation of the uCMDB REST-API we are unable to scale for multiple data consumers.

Especially with chunked data retrieval you have very soon more than 15 requests/second. As a global limitation you can never know when this limitation gets hit.

 

We suggest the following enhancement:

The number of API requests should not be limited globally but per Session. Let’s say 15 requests/s and per session.
With this approach the client can handle the number of parallel requests/second itself and control waiting times accordingly.
Otherwise you never know when the limitation was crossed and this leads to HTTP 5XX errors.
