Hacker News project: IOPub data rate exceeded

Screen Link: https://app.dataquest.io/m/356/guided-project%3A-exploring-hacker-news-posts/1/introduction

After trying to open the hacker_news.csv I got this error:

IOPub data rate exceeded.
The notebook server will temporarily stop sending output
to the client in order to avoid crashing it.
To change this limit, set the config variable

Current values:
NotebookApp.iopub_data_rate_limit=1000000.0 (bytes/sec)
NotebookApp.rate_limit_window=3.0 (secs)

Not really sure how to fix it. I would like to do the project on my home computer but can’t until this is fixed. Will have to do it in the DataQuest client for now.

Any help?

Hi @burnsdillion,

Can you please share your notebook file (.ipynb)? I will try to reproduce it on my end.


I ended up fixing it using this article: https://www.drjamesfroggatt.com/python-and-neural-networks/iopub-data-rate-exceeded-the-notebook-server-will-temporarily-stop-sending-output-to-the-client-in-order-to-avoid-crashing-it/

I had to generate a config file for Jupyter, then add on a zero to the data rate limit within the file.



I also had this issue but only when I tried to print the whole hacker_news.csv file in the DataQuest client. Limiting the number of rows it printed solved the problem.
