Service Limits

This topic describes the service limits for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and the process for requesting a service limit increase.

About Service Limits and Usage

When you sign up for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, a set of service limits is configured for your tenancy. The service limit is the quota or allowance set on a resource. For example, your tenancy is allowed a maximum number of compute instances per availability domain. These limits are generally established with your Oracle sales representative when you purchase Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. If you did not establish limits with your Oracle sales representative, or, if you signed up through the Oracle Store, default or trial limits are set for your tenancy. These limits may be increased for you automatically based on your Oracle Cloud Infrastructure resource usage and account standing. You can also request a service limit increase.

Compartment Quotas

Compartment quotas are similar to service limits; the biggest difference is that service limits are set by Oracle, and compartment quotas are set by administrators, using policies that allow them to allocate resources with a high level of flexibility. Compartment quotas are set using policy statements written in a simple declarative language that is similar to the IAM policy language.

To learn more, see Compartment Quotas.

Viewing Your Service Limits, Quotas, and Usage

You can view your tenancy's limits, quotas, and usage in the Console. Be aware that:

  • The Console might not yet display limits and usage information for all of the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure services or resources.
  • The usage level listed for a given resource type could be greater than the limit if the limit was reduced after the resources were created.
  • If all the resource limits are listed as 0, this means your account has been suspended. For help, contact Oracle Support.

If you don't yet have a tenancy or a user login for the Console, or if you don't find a particular limit listed in the Console, see Limits by Service for the default tenancy limits.

Service Limits API Policy

For the resource availability API (usage) the policy can be at the tenant or compartment level:


Allow group LimitsAndUsageViewers to read resource-availability in tenancy
Allow group LimitsAndUsageViewers to read resource-availability in compartment A

For limit definitions, services, and values APIs (only at the tenant level):


Allow group LimitsAndUsageViewers to inspect resource-availability in tenancy

For limit values APIs (does not include definitions or services), the following policy is also supported:


Allow group LimitsAndUsageViewers to inspect limits in tenancy
To view your tenancy's limits and usage (by region)
Note

Required Permission

If you're in the Administrators group, you have permission to view the limits and usage. If you're not, here's an example IAM policy that grants the required permission to users in a group called LimitsAndUsageViewers:


Allow group LimitsAndUsageViewers to inspect resource-availability in tenancy

READ resource-availability is required to obtain the resource availability. There are four APIs:

  • listServices
  • listLimitDefinitions
  • listLimitValues
  • getResourceAvailability

limitServices, listLimitDefinitions, and listLimitValues all require INSPECT at the tenancy level, while getResourceAvailability requires READ at the compartment level to be able to read the data.

Note

The Console may not display limits and usage information yet for all Oracle Cloud Infrastructure services or resources.

  1. Open the Console. Open the navigation menu and click Governance & Administration. Under Governance, click Limits, Quotas and Usage..

Your resource limits, quotas, and usage for the specific region are displayed, broken out by service. You can use the filter drop-down lists at the top of the list to filter by service, scope, resource, and compartment.

When You Reach a Service Limit

When you reach the service limit for a resource, you receive an error when you try to create a new resource of that type. You are then prompted to submit a request to increase your limit. You cannot create a new resource until you are granted an increase to your service limit or you terminate an existing resource. Note that service limits apply to a specific scope, and when the service limit in one scope is reached you may still have resources available to you in other scopes (for example, other availability domains).

Requesting a Service Limit Increase

Note

Government Cloud customers can't use the procedure here to request a service limit increase. Instead, see Requesting a Service Limit Increase for Government Cloud Tenancies.

You can submit a request to increase your service limits from within the Console. If you try to create a resource for which limit has been met, you'll be prompted to submit a limit increase request. Additionally, you can launch the request from the service limits page or at any time by clicking the link under the Help menu (Help menu icon).

This procedure applies to requests for service limit increases. For details about the subscribed region limit and how to request an increase to that limit, see Subscribed Region Limits.

To request a service limit increase
  1. Open the Help menu (Help menu icon), go to Support and click Request service limit increase.

  2. Enter the following:

    • Primary Contact Details: Enter the name and email address of the person making the request. Enter one email address only. A confirmation will be sent to this address.
    • Service Category: Select the appropriate category for your request.
    • Resource: Select the appropriate resource.

      Depending on your selection for resource, additional fields might display for more specific information.

    • Reason for Request: Enter a reason for your request. If your request is urgent or unusual, please provide details here.
  3. Click Create Request.

After you submit the request, it is processed. A response can take anywhere from a few minutes to a few days. If your request is granted, a confirmation email is sent to the address provided in the primary contact details.

If we need additional information about your request, a follow-up email is sent to the address provided in the primary contact details.

Limits by Service

Click a service name to view the default limits. Note the scope that each limit applies to (for example, per availability domain, per region, per tenant, etc.).

Note

Some services have additional limits. For more information, see the overview of each service.

Dynamic Limits

Some of these limits can appear as Dynamic in the Console's Limits, Quotas, and Usage page. Pay-as-You-Go or Promo customers have access to a dynamic amount of the particular resource, based on tenancy resource consumption and growth. Access to this resource increases over time.

To place an order for the Oracle-provided Data Transfer Appliance used for appliance-based data transfer and data export jobs, request the required entitlement for your tenancy through the Console or CLI. See Requesting Appliance Entitlement for instructions.

The buyer of your tenancy will be required to e-sign a Terms and Conditions document. After Oracle receives the signed document you will have the entitlement to request and use the Data Transfer Appliance. Appliance-Based Data Import and Data Export each come with a service limit of 2. File a service request if you need to increase that number.

Note

An email is defined as either a single recipient (as defined in the To:, CC:, or BCC: fields) or a 2 MB chunk of an email.

Email examples:

  • A single request with 10 recipients (TO:, CC:, or BCC:) equals 10 emails.

  • A 10 MB email sent to a single recipient is equal to 10 MB divided by 2 MB per email. This equals 5 emails.

  • A single email request with a message size of 10 MB and 10 recipients is equal to 10 MB dvided by 2 MB per email multiplied by 10 recipients. This equals 50 emails.

The email volume limit applies to unique recipients among all emails sent. For example, a single email sent to 100 recipients would count the same as 100 individual emails each sent to a single recipient.
Note

Email Delivery supports messages up to 2 MB, inclusive of message headers, body, and attachments. If you have SPF and DKIM set up on your sending domain, you can request this limit to be increased based on your requirement. The maximum size that can be requested is 60 MB.

Using the API

For information about using the API and signing requests, see REST APIs and Security Credentials. For information about SDKs, see Software Development Kits and Command Line Interface.

Use the following operations in the Service Limits API to manage limits:

Fractional Usage and Availability

Some resources can have fractional usage and availability, and the Service Limits API reflects this accordingly. If the resource is a fractional one, usage reflects the rounded up value of the fractional usage, and for availability, the rounded down value of the fractional availability. As a result, these fractional availability and usage attributes help indicate the most accurate usage and availability.

For example, if a resource has 2.4 used, 4.6 available, the following API response is returned:

{
    used: 3,
    fractionalUsed: 2.4,
    available: 4.6,
    fractionalAvailable: 4
}

For more information, see the available and used attributes in the ResourceAvailability Reference.
