Troubleshooting Error Code S1: System load too high

Sometimes, Kimono will encounter websites that it cannot scrape data from. This will generally happen when you attempt to save an API. Instead of creating the API, a failure screen will pop up like this:


This failure screen will vary depending on the type of error you've encountered. All of the error pages include an error code, which will provide helpful context on what the problem is and how to troubleshoot it. 

What Error Code S1 Means

An S1 Error Code means that our system is under a heavy load at the time. We are always working to improve our capacity, but from time to time, an unusually high load will cause temporary outages. 

What you can do about it

If you're seeing an S1 code, the best remedy is to wait a few minutes and try again. You can leave your API up and come back to it so you don't lose your work.
