Thanks for the reply.
I did add the value you recommended but the behavior didn't change.
I still get 100 api request per second after I apply the settings.

What I noticed it's only on my Windows 10 machine with "8gadgetpack" installed.
Maybe that's the reason for the strange behavior?

Thanks

It's hard to say without more data what causes this, but after applying settings, gadget simply can't send that many requests. It will send only one request to a single API, unless you have configured to call a single API for multiple things.

How do you detect those 100 API requests, and which API server is spammed?

How many gadgets do you have open?

What settings are you using (especially URLs)?

Hi here are some answers to your questions.

  • I use fiddler to detect and debug API requests.
  • At the moment I have one instance of each gadget open. 1x Bitcoin, 1x Litecoin and 1x MyCoin

What data would help you to find the source of this issue?

Can you try this? Clear Fiddler log. Open settings of a single gadget, say MyBitcoins. Apply settings - which should refresh all values in that gadget. How many requests do you get in Fiddler, to which servers? Is that in line with your settings?

Ok here are the results when I have open the litecoin gadget and edit the mycoin gadget:



Every API request is valid but it sends just 100 per second until I get blocked for to many requests.

Yes, I can confirm it works now as intended on my machine. Do you mind telling me what caused the issue?

Thanks again for fixing.

A bug in saving exchange data update interval, which was introduced in the latest version, which I inadvertently introduced after testing, while packaging gadget for release. Pretty lame actually. Smiley

Thank you, sir. Worked nicely.

Due to circumstances beyond my control, I must convert several machines to Windoze 10 (Ugh!). What is the best method/utility for running the gadget on 10? TIA.

I'm probably not the best person to give advice as I'm still running Win7. Maybe the folks using the gadget on Win10 can chip in?

That said, it seems there are at least three alternatives nowadays:

I personal use https://8gadgetpack.net/.
They still push updates and also they've updated the old gadget with new high dpi versions.
