We are not getting data from the specific sub source type inside AWS description -- ELB , all other sources such as EBS is working fine. We configured it in Splunk App for AWS thru metadata. Any Advice.
We are seeing this error in Splunk with this search : index=_internal ERROR sourcetype="aws:description:log"

Which Addon version are you using? The Throttling issue has been fixed in the latest version.

@pchen

So we contacted splunk support for this, their respond:
In order to rectify this, you will need to contact Amazon and discuss increasing your API call limit with them.
AWS respond:
The API limit is measured per account (all IAM users and Services) and cannot be changed. This is to protect all customers and maintain a stable environment which is fair to all customers

See the dilemma here , you are saying : The Throttling issue has been fixed in the latest version ??
