Best Practices for Handling Rate Limits in OpenAI API Integration

HI ,

This topic aims to explore the nuanced approaches to handling rate limits and dives into two primary considerations: managing rate limits through custom headers (utilizing information such as remaining requests and tokens) versus relying on OpenAI’s default retry mechanisms.
