Quotas and limits

This document lists the quotas and limits that apply to Eventarc. For more information on quotas, see Virtual Private Cloud quotas.

A quota restricts how much of a shared Google Cloud resource your Google Cloud project can use, including hardware, software, and network components. Therefore, quotas are a 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 that include ensuring fairness and reducing spikes in usage.
  • Maintains configurations that automatically enforce prescribed restrictions.
  • Provides a means to request or make changes to the quota.

In most cases, when a quota is exceeded, 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 Google Cloud project and are shared across all applications and IP addresses that use that Google Cloud project.

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


Quota Description Value Can be increased Scope
Trigger read requests The number of Eventarc Trigger API reads per minute per project 6000 Yes Per project
Trigger write requests The number of Eventarc Trigger API writes per minute per project 600 Yes. The global location has a write limit of 10 QPS. Per project

Request an increase in quota

If your project needs more of a particular resource than your quotas allow, you can request an increase to most quotas in the Google Cloud console. For more information, see About quota increase requests.


The number of Eventarc resources is limited for a given project. There is no direct limit on the size of the Eventarc API request.
