What is the definition of ONE get request


If i send in one line of get_barset() for 200 stocks, does that count as one request or 200?

Similarly, if i send in a get_barset() for 1 stock, but 1000 bars, does that count as 1 or 1000?

What about 200 stocks for 1000 bars?

Thank you,

I am new to APIs and am trying to figure out the basics still.

The API rate limit of 200 per minute is simply based on the number of API calls you make, so it does not matter how much data you are retrieving per call. Keep in mind that there is another limit around the number of symbols you can call for data API.
