Limits

Limits and quotas in Cube Cloud

Cube Cloud implements limits on resource usage on account and deployment levels to ensure the best experience for all Cube Cloud users.

Limits apply to Cube Cloud accounts on all tiers (opens in a new tab).

Limit types

Each limit can be of one of the following types:

  • Hard limit either has a threshold that can't be exceeded or prevents further use of a resource when a threshhold is hit until a cool-down period passes (e.g., until the next day starts) or the limit is increased (e.g., when a Cube Cloud account upgrades to another tier).
  • Soft limit may allow further use of a resource after a threshold is hit.

Resources

The following resources are subject to limits, depending on deployment types and pricing tiers:

Number of deployments

This is a hard limit. Consider upgrading to another tier.

Number of API instances

This is a hard limit. Consider upgrading to another tier.

Number of Cube Store workers

This is a hard limit. Consider upgrading to another tier.

Queries per day

This is a hard limit. Usage is calculated per Cube Cloud account, i.e., in total for all deployments within an account.

When a threshold is hit, further queries will not be processed. In that case, consider upgrading a development instance to a production cluster. Alternatively, consider upgrading to another tier.

Queries processed by Query History per day

This is a soft limit. Usage is calculated per Cube Cloud account, i.e., in total for all deployments within an account.

When a threshold is hit, query processing will be stopped. Please contact support (opens in a new tab) for further assistance.

Data retained by Query History

This is a soft limit. Usage is calculated per Cube Cloud account, i.e., in total for all deployments within an account.

Quotas

The REST and GraphQL APIs both have a standard quota of 100 requests per second per deployment; this can also go higher for short bursts of traffic. These limits can be raised on request, contact support (opens in a new tab) for more details.

When the quota is exceeded, the API will return a 429 Too Many Requests response.
