Github API V4 Graphql Differnce between edge/node/node limit/rate limit

I am new to GITHUB API V4. Could some one explain a bit more explanation on the difference between



Node Limit

Rate Limit



“Edge” and “Node” are part of the “Connections Pattern”:

Node Limit and Rate Limit are well-documented by github, the gist is that a given graphql query can’t retrieve too many objects (nodes) so that’s your “Node Limit” (a limit per query, basically you can’t get more than half a million structures per call). “Rate Limit” is a limit per hour on the account, it’s the number of connections traversed to retrieve the information, divided by 100 (see the end of the page linked above, there’s an example).
