Quotas and limits

This document lists the quotas and limits that apply to Google Distributed Cloud Edge.

A quota restricts how much of a particular shared Google Cloud resource your Cloud project can use, including hardware, software, and network components.

Quotas are part of a system that does the following:

  • Monitors your use or consumption of Google Cloud products and services.
  • Restricts your consumption of those resources for reasons including ensuring fairness and reducing spikes in usage.
  • Maintains configurations that automatically enforce prescribed restrictions.
  • Provides a means to make or request changes to the quota.

When a quota is exceeded, in most cases, the system immediately blocks access to the relevant Google resource, and the task that you're trying to perform fails. In most cases, quotas apply to each Cloud project and are shared across all applications and IP addresses that use that Cloud project.

There are also limits on Distributed Cloud Edge resources. These limits are unrelated to the quota system. Limits cannot be changed unless otherwise stated.

Your use of Distributed Cloud Edge is governed by the following types of quotas:

  • Rate quotas determine how quickly you can call the Google Distributed Cloud Edge API as well as create and access Distributed Cloud Edge resources.

  • Resource quotas determine the total amount of Distributed Cloud Edge resources you can create within your Cloud project.

For more information about working with quotas, including steps for increasing them, and for setting up monitoring and alerting on quota metrics, see Working with quotas.
