Usage guidelines for IRIS DMC services

Guidelines for using web services

Web services hosted at the IRIS DMC (http://service.iris.edu) should be used with following limitations:

  • Users should limit usage to no more than 3 concurrent connections to any combination of web services.
  • Users should limit their clients to no more than 10 connections per second regardless of the return capability of the service interfaces.

The DMC’s network equipment will deny connections (via a TCP RESET) when the limits have been exceeded.
