Quotas and limits

This page describes quotas and limits for Container Registry.

For more information about quotas, see Working with quotas.

Request limits

Any request sent to a Container Registry host in the gcr.io domain has a 2 hour timeout limit.

There is a fixed quota limit on requests to Container Registry hosts. This limit is per client IP address.

  • 50,000 HTTP requests every 10 minutes
  • 1,000,000 HTTP requests per day

To avoid exceeding the these limits, you can:

  • Increase the number of IP addresses that connect to Container Registry.
  • Add retries that introduce a delay. For example, you can use exponential backoff.

Cloud Storage quotas and limits

Container Registry uses Cloud Storage for each registry's underlying storage. Cloud Storage Quotas & Limits apply to each registry.
