Is there a way to check how many times request for domain was called

Hello Team,

I'm hitting this error:
"Error creating new order :: too many certificates (5) already issued for this exact set of domains in the last 168 hours

I'm wondering, if there is a way I can check how many times the cert was issued, prior to calling for issue of new one.
Is there an API that can give me this info?
Can you possibly share curl command or alternative to validate?

No, but I'm wondering why you're hitting that rate limit in the first place? That rate limit is there to prevent run-away ACME clients. You're not supposed to hit it.
