Processing Units
The number of Processing Units per user relates to how they are throttled in their intensity of use of the data you make available in your maps. Processing Units rack up when making requests to the API.
As all Ellipsis Drive endpoints are built on top of the API, the use of each one of them feeds the number of Processing Units. Therefore the intensity of use via each endpoint can also be throttled.
When intensively using data, running a script, downloading data, or querying the API directly, processing units are generated. PUs are being tracked because they create computing costs on the server side.
πŸ“Œ You can check your TOTAL and CONSUMED PUs by visiting the dashboard here.
πŸ“Œ Ellipsis Drive enables you to throttle users in order to make sure that the available bandwidth is fairly divided among everyone. See below
how to do that.
