Amazon API Gateway has raised the default limit on requests made to your API to 10,000 requests per second (RPS) from 1,000 RPS. The burst limit has been raised to 5,000 requests across all APIs in your account from the original limit of 2,000 requests. API Gateway throttles requests to your API to prevent it from being overwhelmed by too many requests. To raise the default limit, contact AWS Support.
This feature is now available in US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), US West (N. California), South America (São Paulo), EU (Ireland), EU (Frankfurt), EU (London), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Seoul), and Asia Pacific (Mumbai) AWS regions. Visit our documentation to learn more about API Gateway throttling limits. To request an increase of account-level throttling limits, please contact the AWS Support.
