Platform Enhancements

Run Immediate

A common problem customers encounter while using Daton is that, when they choose a replication frequency of 1 hour, this frequency also gets applied to historical data extracts. This results in a longer extraction time for this data. This issue, although manageable, was not ideal primarily when customers selected 24 hours as the replication frequency.

Solution with Run Immediate

With the recent release of Run Immediate, we have launched the underlying platform capability to trigger a new replication job immediately after a currently running replication job is complete. A source could make a determination as to whether the next job should wait for the set frequency, typically for incremental extracts, or run the next job immediately.

Note that, all new sources built on Daton, going forward, will have this capability built-in right from the beginning. We will work on adding this capability to the currently available sources over the next couple of quarters.


  1. Faster replication of historical data.

  2. Small extraction windows lead to fewer errors and more scalable sources.

Advanced Rate Limit Manager

Rate Limit Management is central to the efficient extraction of data. Although some versions of rate limit management have been implemented in Daton over the last couple of years, we have been quickly growing out of it, necessitating a complete overhaul of this critical module.

Daton implements an Advanced Rate Limit Manager that provides a faster, more reliable data replication capability to our customers, without overhead to our partners.

Rate Limit Manager had been designed to centrally manage API calls made by each Daton connector. It keeps track of API calls made, determines the number of calls available dynamically, and notifies the pipelines so that further calls to the APIs could be made or held until limits become available again.

API throttling occurs when:

  • Daily/Monthly limits exceed for subscription

  • API call limits exceed per hour/minute/second for a developer account

  • API call limits exceed per hour/minute/second for a user/subscription


  1. Reduce throttling errors and job failures Data availability becomes faster, and jobs complete without errors

  2. Fewer error notification emails sent

  3. Optimizes API limits Data replication becomes data faster for both historical and incremental data
