Inquire about HTTP status code 429

I was developing a web for various monitoring using Meraki Dashboard API this time.

But suddenly, http status code : 429 occurred.

What I'm curious about here is:
1) I want to know the exact condition that http status code 429 occurs.
    I'd like you to let me know if anyone knows.
2) I'd like to know how to mitigate the condition that http status code 429 occurs.

I'd appreciate it if you let me know if you know anything about the above two things.

Kind of a big deal

The document @ww posted says it all, but in summary, there is a limit to the number of API calls you can make per minute. This is to protect both the Meraki systems and to give everyone a fair-go. There is no way of increasing your limit.

 

You’ll need to look at your script and see if there is a more optimal way of achieving your outcome. For example, rather than polling each device, use an API endpoint that provides a summary response for multiple devices, then drill down if needed. Or implement webhooks to get an alert about a device, rather than continually polling
