Is there a list of things to check before going live (production)?
Before going into Production (Live), we highly recommend our users to reach out to us a few weeks before, so that there is enough time for us to assess your project needs and have the right plans to ensure a smooth operation when their project is live.
Below is a checklist of things to consider before going live:
- Ensure you're familiar with the weightings of all your API calls (weightings)
- Ensure you've calculated your estimates by considering the number of chains you need to call
- To avoid rate limits, build a service for error handling and retrying failed requests
- Spread out your calls to avoid rate limiting
- Parallel calls using different from_block and to_block ranges can help improve request speeds
- Prepare your rate limit for production - How do I upgrade my plan? (Increase Rate Limits)
- Please email us at email@example.com to get a custom rate limit above the Pro and Business plan.
Check your request usage
Your current request usage statistics can be found under "Account>Usage".
