Rate Limit Reached without making calls? "Rate limit reached. You reached free usage limit (reset hourly)."

Hi Everyone,

I have some issues with my App, using the huggingfacehub API.
Everything worked fine and I had no issues for several days, but out of nowhere I get an error, that my rate limit is reached.
I am using the free plan, therefore it is ok that I reach the limit, but even though, I deleted all my Tokens, shutdown my App and waited several hours, I still get the same following error:

huggingface_hub.utils._errors.HfHubHTTPError: 429 Client Error: Too Many Requests for url: https://api-inference.huggingface.co/models/google/flan-t5-xxl (Request ID: xxx)
Rate limit reached. You reached free usage limit (reset hourly). Please subscribe to a plan at https://huggingface.co/pricing to use the API at this rate

Hence my question:

  • Is the rate limit actually reseted hourly or do I have to reset it somehow manually, since It does not seem to be reseted?
  • Is there any possibility for me to track the usage (which token was used, where did the api request come from, etc?)
  • Is there something I missed?

Every somehow helpful answer is welcome :blush::hugs:
