How does Xignite define a "hit"?

Xignite offers unlimited hits on most of our APIs, but viewing your hits may be helpful to understand how much data your system is consuming on a daily basis.

Xignite defines a "hit" as a measurement of how much data is requested per API call. or as one data point per security, per day.

For the specific calculation of an API, please visit the "Usage" tab on the website test form on any Xignite API.

For example, the endpoint GetGlobalDelayedQuotes on our for XigniteGlobalQuotes 
Hit Calculation = "Requests against this operation count as one hit per symbol or identifier".

Read Getting Started with Xignite APIs to learn more about how to use our Test Forms.
