FileBot does not respect AniDB API limitation

Post by FileBotAwesome » 27 Apr 2019, 19:30

I have been banned on 5 different IPs.

I have talked to AniDB and they have asked me to provide this link: https://wiki.anidb.net/w/UDP_API_Defini ... Protection

Thanks for your time

edit:

some things I was doing before getting banned:

Had 70 files in rename and match them. Some titles I had to write manually. Others I had to scroll through the list.

Also happens on smaller quantities (<10)

Bug report:

Titles that were matched before getting banned also get deleted.

FileBot abides by the following rules:
* no more than 2 HTTP requests per 5 seconds
* all data is cached for 6 days


:idea: These should be well within the limits of the HTTP API (not the same as the UDP API).

:idea: It is possible to get around these limitations by running multiple instances of FileBot, but this is generally never the case for a typical GUI user or CLI user.

If you're using a shared IP, that is shared with many other people using AniDB, then AniDB might ban that IP.

:idea: Most users can't change their IP. Most users also don't seem to have issues with AniDB. There might be a connection.

I'm not sure what that means.

You can enable full debug logging with time stamps to double check what requests and made and when:
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3913
:idea: Please read the FAQ and How to Request Help.

A Client MUST NOT send more than one packet every four seconds over an extended amount of time. Long renames could fall under this.
