Does the returned result set count against query rate?

If I set the howMany argument to 50 and I receive a result of 45 entities, it counts as 3 requests against the monthly limit.

But does it also count as 3 queries against the request rate (60 per minute on my current plan), so that I may only make 20 such queries per minute?


The rate limits in FlightXML 3 beta consider only the number of network requests made, not number of results returned. It is in your favor to optimize your howMany so that you are able to reliably retrieve your results in the fewest number of network requests without causing a server timeout.
