I’m not entirely sure about how the GNIP counts the maximum number of estimates per day for Historical Powertrack.
The reference suggests:
A maximum of 60 Jobs can be created per (UTC) day.
A maximum of 30 Jobs can be created per hour.
A maximum of 2 Jobs can be estimating concurrently.
A maximum of 2 Jobs can be running concurrently.
Now, this does not seem to be true. If i hit 60 estimates, i always have to wait 24h from the moment I’ve hit the limit and then it sort of “frees up” an estimate “slot” when 24h pass from the first next estiamate.
If you do a query at
- 1 query at 12pm
- 5 queries at 1pm
- 20 queries at 2pm
- 4 queries at 3 pm
- 30 queries at 4pm
you can not do another query until 12pm the next day and then 1 is freed up (so you can only do 1 query until 1 pm when 5 are freed up).
Could anybody clarify what’s going on and why in practice the reference is not being followed by GNIP, or it’s not clarified completely, or I’m just missing something when reading through it?
p.s. I specifically only estimates as jobs, and not accepted jobs.
