Discussions about the Calendar Tool at lds.org. Questions about the calendar on the classic site should be posted in the LUWS forum.

9 minute sync throttle

Postby david.dunston » Mon Oct 29, 2012 1:00 pm

Does accessing the Calendar on lds.org contribute to the number of syncs, or does the 9 minute throttle only apply to devices subscribing to the generated URL?

As far as we've been told, it's just the URL. But it seems like easy theory to test as things don't always work as intended.
Have you searched the Wiki?
Try using a Google search by adding "site:tech.lds.org/wiki" to the search criteria.

The throttle only applies to devices (which includes servers, desktop computers, etc.) that access your sync URL. The Calendar on LDS.org gets its data using different webservices (as is obvious from the fact that the Sync URL generates a calendar that flattens all the calendars into one), so accessing it has absolutely no impact on the 9-minute throttling.

I have verified this personally through experimentation.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

Thanks for this info. I added the clarification from this thread in the calendar help topic in the same section where the 9 minute refresh rule is explained.
