I've created several pipes and I'm trying to find out what happens if they become popular to prevent 999 errors. Specifically how does Yahoo cache the feeds and is their anyway to preconfigure the timing of the cache?
In other words if I create a pipe does the pipe automatically become cached and are any calls placed to it served from the cache solely, not affecting the rate of 200 runs (of a given Pipe) in a 10 minute period?
thanks for getting back with your answer - the caching rate is fine.
However could you clarify for me how the rate limits as I'm still unclear as to how it works:
Lets suppose several hundred people decide to look at the pipe within a 10 minute time-frame, are they served a cached version, or is each request seen as a new call and it then goes over the 200 rate limit? If the latter is the case does that mean that the pipe goes 'offline' for an hour for all users of the pipe, or is a cached version served instead?
