Usage Limits Explained?

Hello!

On the "homepage" of YQL, we can find that the Usage Limits are 100k calls per day (if using an Access Key). But it also talks about per IP limits of 1k calls/h for public stuff and 10k calls/h for yql.

So far, so unclear... laugh.gif

Now, if I have an app running on my server and I use an access key, how many calls to /v1/public/* can I make? 1'000? If so, how to reach the 100k limit? My app is only ever going to use YQL to access public ressources (rss/atom feeds, to be exact).

Further: How do these limit apply, if YQL is used directly using the YQL module from Yahoo! Pipes? I cannot use an access key in Pipes, can I? And what IP would be used for counting against the 1'000 (?) limit? The one from Yahoo! Pipes servers? I guess not, but which one instead?

I'm quite confused, as you can see... wacko.gif

Oh, and how much is it, if more calls need to be made?

It'd be great, if someone could shed some light.

Cheers,
Alexander
