Rate Limit for Updates

What is the problem?

By simply having 5 printers with 5 octoprint instances I am constantly running into "Rate limit exceeded while checking for update, please try again later"

I get an update notification on one or two printers, so it'd be nice to update all of them - but half of my printers are unable to even get the update because the rate limit is exceeded.

This happens about 50 percent of the time a plugin or Octoprint is updated that at least one of them will be gated from the update due to this rate limiting.

What did you already try to solve it?

Look into some sort of rate limiter setting, but I didn't see one

Have you tried running in safe mode?


Did running in safe mode solve the problem?

No, it did not impact the rate limiting.

I've just added an FAQ entry on this:


I created a Personal Access Token in my GitHub account and added it to OctoPrint...multiple reboots. Still get the error on half my plugins. Token was created last night...issue persists still. What should I check next?
