Rate Limits

The Samsara APIs have rate limits in place to protect our services from API traffic spikes that could put them at risk.

Global Rate Limits

These rate limits apply to all API endpoints:

  • Per token
    • Each API access token may make 150 API requests per second
  • Per organization
    • Each organization may make 200 API requests per second

In other words, a single API token may only make 150 requests per second. An organization may have multiple API tokens, but an organization may only make 200 total requests per second.

Per API Rate Limits

These rate limits apply to specific endpoints. Your organization is limited to the number of requests listed below for a given endpoint, regardless of how many API tokens are being used. If an endpoint is not listed here, then it uses the global rate limit described above.
