Hello! Had a question on what is recommended behavior when using backoff. I’m currently working with
tap-mixpanel
which has backoff configured with
max_tries=7,factor=3
. However, I’m hitting an error because the Mixpanel API has a limit of 60 queries per hour so when the rate limit is hit, it backs off for 10-30sec and then gives up. Since I know the limit would be for an entire hour is it recommended to fail like this, or should I reconfigure backoff to wait longer? If I should reconfigure, what should I change? cc: @aaronsteers what are your thoughts?
