Rate limit preventing relay validator registration


We are registering quite a lot of validators on mainnet and we often get rate-limited, there doesn´t seem to be an adequate strategy:

  • if we send too-large registration requests we get timeouts
  • if we send too-small registration requests we get rate-limited

Is there a possibility you could reduce the rate-limiting on the registration route so that it doesn’t impact production on the validator side?

Example logs:

time="2024-01-31T18:31:01.384Z" level=warning msg="error calling registerValidator on relay" error="HTTP error response: 429 / <html>\r\n<head><title>429 Too Many Requests</title></head>\r\n<body>\r\n<center><h1>429 Too Many Requests</h1></center>\r\n<hr><center>nginx</center>\r\n</body>\r\n</html>\r\n" method=registerValidator numRegistrations=100 url="https://mainnet-relay.securerpc.com/eth/v1/builder/validators" version=v1.6
