Do private Phant servers have a rate limit?

Post by distro inferno » Mon Sep 12, 2016 12:00 pm

I'm trying to post 600 integers per second to Phant, which isn't possible on data.sparkfun.com because they implement rate limiting of 100 posts per 15 minutes according to the documentation. Also, concatenating the data into fewer posts is probably not possible because it all gets sent as one giant http:// string and I don't think I can send a 2.4kB http request!

However, even if I could get the private Phant server working (see other threads related to that), does anyone know if it has the rate limit built in? I didn't see anything that clearly mentioned that in the code or docs.

Edit: Does anyone know the size limit for the HTTP POST request?
