Connector Limitations

The rate of lookup requests for events stream is limited to two per second, per account, per region. This connector gracefully retries when encountering a throttling error. However if the errors continue repeatedly after multiple retries (for example if you setup many instances of this connector using the same account and region), the connector sync will fail.
