Quotas and limits

The following sections describe quotas and limits for Cloud Interconnect. To change a quota, see requesting additional quota. Limits cannot generally be increased unless specifically noted.


This table highlights important quotas for each project. For other quotas, see the Cloud Console Quotas page.

Item Quota Notes
Interconnect connections Quota

The number of Interconnect connections per project.

Interconnect connections are not associated with regions or VPC networks.

Interconnect connection bandwidth per project Calculated automatically

The total Interconnect connection bandwidth for the project, calculated by adding up the bandwidths of each connection it contains.

The bandwidth of each connection is calculated by multiplying the capacities of its circuits (either 10 Gbps or 100 Gbps) by the number of circuits in the connection.

For example, an Interconnect connection consisting of four 10-Gbps circuits has 40 Gbps of bandwidth. If you have two such connections in your project, this quota is automatically set to 80 Gbps.

VLAN attachments Quota

The number of VLAN attachments that you can configure in each region for your project.

Regardless of this quota, you are also limited to a total of 16 VLAN attachments per Interconnect connection. If you require additional attachments per connection, see the Maximum number of VLAN attachments that can be associated with a single Interconnect connection in the Limits table.

VLAN attachments total Mbps Quota

The maximum bandwidth capacity of all VLAN attachments in a given region for a given project, irrespective of their relationship with Interconnect connections.

In addition to this quota, the limits described in the Limits table apply.

Cloud Routers Quota

The number of Cloud Routers that you can create within your project, in any network and region.

Networks also have a limit on the number of Cloud Routers in any given region.

For more details, see Cloud Router quotas and limits.


The following limits apply to Interconnect connections and VLAN attachments. Unless otherwise stated, these limits cannot be increased.

Item Limit Notes
Maximum number of physical circuits per Interconnect connection 8 x 10 Gbps (80-Gbps) circuits or
2 x 100 Gbps (200-Gbps) circuits

An Interconnect connection is a logical connection to Google, made up of one or more physical circuits. You can request one of the following circuit choices:

  • Up to 2 x 100 Gbps (200-Gbps) circuits.
  • 10-Gbps increments up to eight circuits (80 Gbps) to increase the maximum total bandwidth of all VLAN attachments that use the Interconnect connection to 80 Gbps.

    To determine the bandwidth, multiply the number of physical circuits by the bandwidth per circuit (10 Gbps).

Maximum number of VLAN attachments that can be associated with a single Interconnect connection 16 Each Interconnect connection supports no more than 16 VLAN attachments, even if you would otherwise have quota to create more VLAN attachments.
Maximum bandwidth per VLAN attachment Capacities from 50 Mbps to 50 Gbps

The maximum possible bandwidth per VLAN attachment depends on the bandwidth capacity that you order. For capacities, see the Pricing page. For Partner Interconnect, not all service providers offer all capacities.

The throughput of individual flows on a VLAN attachment is limited. To achieve maximum throughput, you must use multiple five-tuple flows (for example: 10+) with packet sizes within the MTU of the VLAN attachment.

Maximum total packet rate per VLAN attachment

This rate varies according to the attachment's capacity:

  • The maximum rate for a 50-Gbps VLAN attachment is 6.25 M packets per second (pps).
  • The maximum rate for a 10-Gbps VLAN attachment is 1.25 M packets per second (pps).
The maximum packet rate for the entire VLAN attachment.
Maximum bandwidth per traffic flow on a VLAN attachment

3 Gbps

Even if you configure your attachment higher than 3 Gbps, your per-flow capacity is capped at 3 Gbps.

A traffic flow is identified by either a five-tuple hash for non-fragmented packets or a three-tuple hash for fragmented packets:

  • A five-tuple hash consists of a protocol, source IP address, source port, destination IP address, and destination port.
  • A three-tuple hash consists of a protocol, source IP address, and destination IP address.

The following cases describe where the maximum bandwidth is lower than 3 Gbps:

  • If the bandwidth capacity of your VLAN attachment is less than 3 Gbps, the bandwidth per traffic flow is limited by the bandwidth of the VLAN attachment.
  • If you reach the maximum packet rate per traffic flow (as described in the next section).
Maximum packet rate per traffic flow on a VLAN attachment 250,000 packets per second The maximum rate of packets per traffic flow, identified by a five-tuple hash for non-fragmented packets and by a three-tuple hash for fragmented packets (as described in the previous section).
Maximum transmission unit (MTU) 1440 bytes The size of the largest IP address packet that can be transmitted over a VLAN attachment.
Maximum lifetime of (Partner Interconnect) VLAN attachment pairing key 28 days

The maximum amount of time that can pass between generating a (Partner Interconnect) VLAN attachment pairing key and successful attachment provisioning by the service provider.

If a pairing key is no longer valid, you delete and create a new pairing key for the Partner Interconnect service provider to use.

Cloud Router limits

Because Dedicated Interconnect and Partner Interconnect require Cloud Router, all the Cloud Router quotas and limits apply.

There are limits on the maximum number of learned custom dynamic routes and on the number of advertised routes. For more information, see the Cloud Router Quotas and limits page.


出于多种原因,Cloud Interconnect 会对资源用量实施配额限制。例如,配额可避免出现意料之外的用量突增,从而为 Google Cloud 用户社区提供保护。配额还可帮助正在通过免费层级探索 Google Cloud 的用户避免中断试用。



要查看配额或申请增加配额,Cloud Identity and Access Management (Cloud IAM) 成员需要具备以下某个角色。

任务 所需角色
检查项目的配额 项目 Owner 或 Editor Quota Viewer
修改配额,申请更多配额 项目 Owner 或 EditorQuota Admin 或具有 serviceusage.quotas.update 权限的自定义角色


在 Cloud Console 中,转到配额页面。

使用 gcloud 命令行工具,运行以下命令来检查配额。请将 PROJECT_ID 替换为您自己的项目 ID。

    gcloud compute project-info describe --project PROJECT_ID


    gcloud compute regions describe example-region


如果在发出 gcloud 命令时超过了配额,gcloud 会显示一条 quota exceeded 错误消息,并返回退出代码 1

如果在发出 API 请求时超出了配额,Google Cloud 会返回以下 HTTP 状态代码:HTTP 413 Request Entity Too Large


请从 Cloud Console 中的配额页面申请更多配额。配额申请需要 24 到 48 小时才能完成处理。

  1. 转到配额页面。


  2. 配额页面上,选择您要更改的配额。
  3. 点击页面顶部的修改配额按钮。
  4. 填写您的姓名、电子邮件地址和电话号码,然后点击下一步
  5. 填写您的配额申请,然后点击下一步
  6. 提交您的申请。


每个配额代表您可以创建的特定类型资源的数量上限,前提是该资源可用。必须要注意的是,配额无法保证资源可用。即使您有可用配额,如果新资源不可用,您也无法创建新资源。例如,即使您在 us-central1 地区有足够的配额来创建地区级外部 IP 地址,但如果该地区没有外部 IP 地址可用,您也无法进行此操作。区域级资源可用性也会影响您能否创建新资源。

某种资源在整个地区中都不可用的情况很少见;但是,一个区域中的资源可能会时不时地被耗尽,但这通常不会影响该资源类型的服务等级协议 (SLA)。如需了解详情,请参阅资源的相关 SLA。
