Another way to mitigate this error is to limit requests to 8 per second for Ad Manager 360 accounts, or 2 per second for Ad Manager accounts. Once again this does not guarantee that every request will succeed, but may help reduce the number of times you receive this error.

If it fails again, try increasing the wait time.

Another way to mitigate this error is to limit the number of new report requests to 250 per hour per user. Once again, this does not guarantee that every request will succeed, but may help reduce the number of times you receive this error.
