Last week I had to implement a cache on my queries to appannie API because we were regularly bumping to the limit of 1000 queries a day.
This got me wondering how does geckoboard handle dashboard loops. An example will probably explain it best:
Note: I’m using poll, not push.
I have 5 dashboards.
Each dashboard has about 8 widgets which data comes from appannie
Each widget is configured to refresh every 1h
If I display just 1 static dashboard, I expect to have 8 queries an hour.
However, I have a loop which opens each dashboard every 20s
So my question is: does this loop make new queries every 20s, or do I have 5 * 8 = 40 queries an hour as for the single static dashboard ?
