Subject [jira] [Created] (BROOKLYN-394) "Request limit exceeded" on Amazon
Date Thu, 17 Nov 2016 12:20:58 GMT
Svetoslav Neykov created BROOKLYN-394:

             Summary: "Request limit exceeded" on Amazon
                 Key: BROOKLYN-394
             Project: Brooklyn
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Svetoslav Neykov

Any moderately sized blueprint could trigger {{Request limit exceeded}} on Amazon (say kubernetes).
The only way users have control over the request rate is by setting {{maxConcurrentMachineCreations}}
with the current recommended value of 3 (see
It's bad user experience if one needs to adapt the location based on the blueprint.

Possible steps to improve:
* Add to troubleshooting documentation
* Make maxConcurrentMachineCreations default to 3
* Check are we polling for machine creation too often.
* Check how many requests are we hitting Amazon with (per created machine)
* The number of requests per machine could vary from blueprint to blueprint (say if the blueprint
is creating security networks, using other amazon services). Is there a way to throttle our
requests to amazon and stay below a certain limit per second?
