[Resolved] An error occurred (Throttling) when calling the DescribeLoadBalancers operation (reached max retries: 4): Rate exceeded

 

Issue:- 

If you are having big infrastructure and you have put lot of automation in place than your awscli limits might reach the thresholds which might result in error like.

Error:- 

 An error occurred (Throttling) when calling the DescribeLoadBalancers operation (reached max retries: 4): Rate exceeded

Effect:-

The command or the script which you have run might failed due to the limit being reached for the calls to the aws resource and retries also exhausted. You might run the command again if you doing it manually and facing error but in case its some script that will cause bigger issue to make the script failed without the retry logic written within the script as well which you have created.
