The rate limiting is the reason why I switched a previous environment to AWS firehose as per the blog post " Ready, Set, Stream with the Kinesis Firehose and Splunk Integration" or refer to the kinesis firehose add on documentation

The permissions will likely be AWS related and unfortunately not the easiest thing to get right, I found using the push method much easier and it resulted in no rate limiting which was not avoidable in my previous environment.
