How to know when the 6 hour limit for download would be reset to 100

Hi There,

I have gone through this documentation : https://docs.docker.com/docker-hub/download-rate-limit/

So I do know that the anonymous user will have a limit of 100/6 hours. However is from the above response, it really doesn’t indicate when my fresh new 6 hour limit would be restored. I understand in the long run, we would have to move to a paid account or a mirroring solution, but right now, is there a way to even provide a response parameter which tells us how long before my 'Rate-Limit Remaining" would be back to 100

Once again lewish95 the Let me Google that for you bot has committed plagiarism. (ref)

The reason I ask is I have a local install of gitlab and I see 0 jobs being submitted in last 6 hours. When I login to the runners, from where docker pulls happen and I see 0 requests in last 6 hours. But somehow the limit just falls to 0 and there is no way I can tell why this happens.It definitely gets reset to 100 even before 6 hours, but really can’t tell how this limit changes. I was hoping there would be a way to audit the pulls that were made in the last X hours to really confirm this. I have started the daemon already in debug mode, and I can’t trace any requests that is spiking my remaining downloads
