level throttling


When creating an API, you can select multiple entries from the list of default tiers. Also, you can add your own tiers to the API Manager using the instructions in section Adding New Throttling Tiers. At subscription time, the consumers of the API can choose which tier they are interested in. Accordingly, the subscriber is granted a maximum number of requests as defined in the tier s/he selected.  

Application-level throttling

Throttling can also be set at the application-level using the API Store. You can find more information on Application-Level Throttling.
