Which queries are counted as part of the max QPS computations?

The maximum query per second (or QPS) metrics are computed from search queries only. Every time such a query is received, the second at which it is performed is counted as part of the maximum QPS computations.

The following actions are considered as “search queries”:

  • Search queries against your Algolia indices’ records
  • Search queries against your Algolia indices’ facets
  • Search queries against your Algolia indices’ synonyms
  • Search queries against your Algolia indices’ query rules
  • Algolia Places search queries

Note: when we refer to “Search”, this also includes the browse and deleteByQuery methods.
