Okay so I'm programming an internal program which uses the API to create Excel files, custom graphs, and other dataformats other than the built-in PDF format. I have read that you pipeline and restrict the amounts of API calls to a specific amount to reduce stress on the servers. But my question is, if I do more than 5 requests within a couple of milliseconds of each other (what seems to be the limit AFAIK) what will happen to the those requests except the 5 first ones? Will I get a statuscode first and then wait for a datastream? Will the request just not reach? Will the API queue all my requests and then each of them just arrive a couple of minutes of one another depending on the amount of requests I do? What can I expect from the API so I can handle this properly in my code?
