Microsoft graph API for sign-in logs gets throttled when requested for large period ( 10- 30 days). Works fine when the period is small ( 1-5 days).
When the below query was requested we received 429 response code and the message "This request is throttled. Please try again after the value specified in the Retry-After header."
SignIn API (With 18days period) :$orderby=createdDateTime asc&$filter=createdDateTime gt 2021-04-02T11:59:59Z and createdDateTime+le+2021-04-20T10:51:20Z

And based on Best practices to avoid throttling documentation, we did not exceed the request.
Does the throttling depends on the number of data being queried?
