Handling HTTP Response Status Code 429 (Too may requests)


HTTP Status Code 429 - Too Many Requests

The HTTP 429 Too Many Requests response status code indicates the user has sent too many
requests in a given amount of time ("rate limiting").

A Retry-After header might be included to this response indicating how long to wait before
making a new request.
