Throttling occurs when you exceed a certain multiplier of you per minute data volume ingest, calculated from your daily average ingest.
If you have a 100 GB/day plan, you per minute throttling limit is calculated as follows:
100GB/day = (0.0694 GB/min or 69.4 MB/min) * 7.5x (from below table) = 0.5208 GB/min
So, if you exceed 0.5208 GB in one minute, your account will be throttled, and we will slow down collection for the account until your data collection rate drops below this.
Throttling Limit table (see here for more details):
|Account Size - Daily Average||Multiplier|
|Less than 100GB per day.||7.5x|
|Between 100-256GB per day.||6x|
|Between 256-512GB per day.||4.5x|
|More than 512GB per day.||3x|
