There was an error getting log events. Rate exceeded


When I click log group, there is a high probability that an error will be reported: There was an error getting log events. Rate exceeded. When I view the service quota in my account region: (Service Quotas > AWS service > Amazon CloudWatch Logs > GetLogEvents throttle limit in transactions per second ) I see that the quota limit is not exceeded。

Normally, if such an error occurs when I click on the page, I will try again, which is not a big problem. However, when I use fluentd to collect logs from a log group, fluentd always reports an error "ThrottlingException get_log_events. Waiting 60.0 seconds to retry."

Therefore, I would like to know why such an error is reported without exceeding the service quota.

Thank you for any help!

I have found the cause of the problem. Because fluentd gets too many log streams at one time according to the prefix name of the log stream, the AWS service limit rate is exceeded:
