WaitTimeSecondsparameter. For more information, see Amazon SQS Long Poll in the Amazon SQS Developer Guide.
Short poll is the default behavior where a weighted random set of machines is sampled
ReceiveMessage call. This means only the messages on the sampled
machines are returned. If the number of messages in the queue is small (less than
1000), it is likely you will get fewer messages than you requested per
call. If the number of messages in the queue is extremely small, you might not receive
any messages in a particular
ReceiveMessage response; in which case you
should repeat the request.
For each message returned, the response includes the following:
MD5 digest of the message body. For information about MD5, go to http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc1321.html.
Message ID you received when you sent the message to the queue.
MD5 digest of the message attributes.
The receipt handle is the identifier you must provide when deleting the message. For more information, see Queue and Message Identifiers in the Amazon SQS Developer Guide.
You can provide the
VisibilityTimeout parameter in your request, which
will be applied to the messages that Amazon SQS returns in the response. If you do
not include the parameter, the overall visibility timeout for the queue is used for
the returned messages. For more information, see Visibility
Timeout in the Amazon SQS Developer Guide.
Going forward, new attributes might be added. If you are writing code that calls this action, we recommend that you structure your code so that it can handle new attributes gracefully.

|OverLimitException||The action that you requested would violate a limit. For example, ReceiveMessage returns this error if the maximum number of messages inflight has already been reached.
