What is the rate limit for KV reads via API?


I’m using the KV store to set values via workers and later read them from another service via API (ie via https://api.cloudflare.com/.../storage/kv/…). However I am bumping up against rate limits when reading and for the life of me can’t find out if they’re published anywhere.

Here’s the error, FWIW:

{“success”:false,“errors”:[{“code”:10000,“message”:“Rate limited. Please wait and consider throttling your request speed”}]}

I should add that this is a “bundled” plan, if that matters.

Have you tried Search? This has come up before.


“Rate-limited by Cloudflare account to 1200 requests every 5 minutes”
You should do KV reads and writes inside the worker, but there a cost for that, documented limit of 100,000 req/s.
I believe you can go beyond that.

Thanks for the link, I tried searching the help center before but only found articles related to other rate limits, didn’t realize the community was a separate search.
