Hi everyone and Roland,

I've read the topic about Overpass quotas, user-agent and HTTP 429 "Too much requests".

Is it possible to have some numbers about overpass API ? I often have this kind of questions when I'm speaking about overpass and people tried to know the limit of overpass.

For instance :
How many queries per hours ? day ?
How many users approximately ?
How many seconds per query the server will work ?
What is the maximum timeout ? What happened if we set a huge number in the timeout ? What happened if we don't set a timeout in the query ?
When to know if a query is too big for the server ?

I always gave some answer to these questions based on my experiences. But it may be wrong.

By the way, I'm the developer of the QuickOSM plugin for QGIS. Each queries has a parameter in the query string : info=QgisQuickOSMPlugin. Is it possible to have some stats about this tool ?
