PagerDuty limits the number of requests that a client can make within a certain amount of time. If your client is making requests too frequently, it will receive a [`429 Too many requests`](http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6585#section-4) error code in response to the rate-limited API request. If your client is throttled, its rate limit will be reset after a minute interval. Your client should expect and be able to handle this error code by waiting a minute before making additional requests.
