Your documentation page http://dev.datasift.com/docs/streaming-api/reconnecting has the following to say about response codes:
- Non HTTP-200 codes should cause a client to back off exponentially
- For more resources on connecting to HTTP streams, it is recommended you consult
the Twitter documentation on connecting to streams as ours works in a very similar way.
Twitter has a page about the response code that they return:
Are all the response codes listed there appropriate for datasift as well? Or are there twitter response codes that are not relevant for datasift and/or datasift response codes that are not listed in the twitter documentation? If the latter is true, where can I find information about these codes?
You also have a page:
that lists a number of text messages that are returned. How are they returned? Are they returned as payload (HttpEntity) to the http response or in another way? For which http response codes are these messages returned? All the non-200 ones?
