Retrieving Your API Limits

Response

After we receive these variables, we will respond with raw XML containing status
and your account's API request limits. You will receive your limit and how many
requests you have left for each time metric currently tracked for your account.
The remaining requests will reset to your limit after the given time metric has
past.

Note: Unlimited is represented by -1 and you may notice it under the day metric
for a limited time.

Example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<xml>
    <status>1</status>
    <minute left="18" limit="30"/>
    <day left="9000" limit="21600"/>
</xml>
