New BETA Meraki Network Health sensor question



Hello team,

you have deployed the new Meraki Network Health Beta sensor recently.

My question is, how many api requests does one such sensor make to retrieve the information for one network? Because there is a limit of i believe 5 requests per second for api.meraki.com and if that is exceeded, there comes a HTTP Error "429 too many requests".

Kind regards

a sensor scan implies 2 calls for one network. Depending on how many Meraki sensors you use, a longer scanning interval of those sensors might be needed.
