    Are you sure? It gives all details: For example, if Azure OpenAI is monitoring request rate on 1-second intervals, then rate limiting will occur for a 600-RPM deployment if more than 10 requests are received during each 1-second period (600 requests per minute = 10 requests per second).

    Hi Kris B,
    Thank you for reaching out to us on the Microsoft Q&A forum.

    I understand your concern regarding the Tokens per Minute (TPM) rate limit in the "Get started with Azure OpenAI Service" module. While this specific detail might not be covered in that unit, I can provide some clarification:

    1.TPM Quota: Your quota defines the maximum tokens per minute allowed for your resources in a specific region. For example, if you have a quota of 240,000 TPM for GPT-3.5 Turbo in East US, you can create deployments that consume a total of up to 240,000 TPM.

    2.TPM Rate Limit: This quota directly translates to your deployment's TPM rate limit. Essentially, you cannot use more tokens per minute than your quota allows. For instance, if your quota is set at 1000 TPM, this means your deployment is limited to consuming 1000 tokens per minute.

    There's an additional layer to consider:

    • Requests per Minute (RPM) Limit: Azure OpenAI Service also enforces an RPM (requests per minute) limit that is proportional to your TPM limit. The current ratio is 6 RPM per 1000 TPM. With a 1000 TPM limit, your deployment's RPM limit would be 6 requests per minute.

    Here are some resources that can be helpful:

    I hope this helps clarify the TPM rate limits for you. If you have any further questions or need additional assistance, please feel free to reach out.
