AWS Service Limits

http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonECS/latest/developerguide/The following tables provide the default limits for AWS services for an AWS account. Unless otherwise noted, each limit is region-specific. Many services contain limits that cannot be changed. For more information about the limits for a specific service, see the documentation for that service.

AWS Trusted Advisor offers a Service Limits check (in the Performance category) that displays your usage and limits for some aspects of some services. For more information, see Service Limits Check Questions in the Trusted Advisor FAQs.

You can take the following steps to request an increase for limits. These increases are not granted immediately, so it may take a couple of days for your increase to become effective.

To request a limit increase

  1. Open the AWS Support Center page, sign in if necessary, and choose Create Case.

  2. For Regarding, choose Service Limit Increase.

  3. Complete Limit Type, Use Case Description, and Contact method. If this request is urgent, choose Phone as the method of contact instead of Web.

  4. Choose Submit.

The Greengrass core software provides a service to automatically detect the IP address(es) of your Greengrass core devices. It sends this information to the AWS Greengrass cloud service and allows AWS IoT devices to download the IP address of the Greengrass core they need to connect to. This feature should not be used in the following circumstances:

  • The IP address of a Greengrass core device changes frequently.

  • The Greengrass core device must always be available to AWS IoT devices in it's group.

  • The Greengrass core has multiple IP addresses and an AWS IoT device is unable to reliably determine which address to use.

  • Sending IP addresses to the cloud raises security concerns.

AWS IoT Limits

Thing Limits

Resource Limit
Thing name size 128 bytes of UTF-8 encoded characters. This limit applies for both the thing registry and Thing Shadow services.
Maximum number of thing attributes for a thing with a thing type 50
Maximum number of thing attribute for a thing without a thing type 3
Number of thing types that can be associated with a thing 1
Maximum number of thing types in an AWS account Unlimited

Message Broker Limits

Resource Description Limit Adjustable
Maximum concurrent client connections per account The maximum number of concurrent connections allowed per account. 500,000 Yes
Connect requests per second per account AWS IoT limits an account to a maximum number of MQTT CONNECT requests per second. 500 Yes

Connect requests per second per client ID

AWS IoT limits MQTT CONNECT requests from the same accountId and clientId to 1 MQTT CONNECT operation per second.

1 No
Subscriptions per account AWS IoT limits an account to a maximum number of subscriptions across all active connections. 500,000 Yes
Subscriptions per second per account AWS IoT limits an account to a maximum number of subscriptions per second. For example, if there are two MQTT SUBSCRIBE requests within a second with 3 subscriptions (topic filters) each, AWS IoT counts those as 6 subscriptions towards this limit. 500 Yes
Subscriptions per connection AWS IoT supports 50 subscriptions per connection. Subscription requests on the same connection in excess of this amount may be rejected by AWS IoT and the connection will be closed. Clients should validate the SUBACK message to ensure that their subscription requests have been successfully processed. 50 No
Publish requests per second per connection AWS IoT limits each client connection to a maximum number of inbound and outbound publish requests per second. Publish requests exceeding that limit will be discarded. 100 No
Inbound publish requests per second per account Inbound publish requests count for all the messages that AWS IoT processes before routing the messages to the subscribed clients or the rules engine. For example, a single message published on $aws/things/device/shadow/update topic can result in publishing three additional messages to $aws/things/device/shadow/update/accepted, $aws/things/device/shadow/update/documents, and $aws/things/device/shadow/delta topics. In this case, AWS IoT counts those as 4 inbound publish requests towards this limit. However, a single message to an unreserved topic like a/b is counted only as a single inbound publish request. 10,000 Yes
Outbound publish requests per second per account Outbound publish requests count for every message that resulted in matching a client's subscription or matching a rules engine subscription. For example, two clients are subscribed to topic filter a/b and a rule is subscribed to topic filter a/#. An inbound publish requests on topic a/b results in a total of 3 outbound publish requests. 20,000 Yes
Throughput per second per connection Data received or sent over a client connection is processed at a maximum throughput rate. Data exceeding the maximum throughput will be delayed in processing. 512 KiB No
Maximum inbound unacknowledged QoS 1 publish requests AWS IoT limits the number of unacknowledged inbound publish requests per client. When this limit is reached, no new publish requests are accepted from this client until a PUBACK message is returned by the server. 100 No
Maximum outbound unacknowledged QoS 1publish requests AWS IoT limits the number of unacknowledged outbound publish requests per client. When this limit is reached, no new publish requests are sent to the client until the client acknowledges the publish requests. 100 No
Maximum retry interval for delivering QoS 1 messages AWS IoT will retry delivery of unacknowledged quality-of-service 1 (QoS 1) publish requests to a client for up to one hour. If AWS IoT does not receive a PUBACK message from the client after one hour, it will drop the publish requests. 1 hour No

Protocol Limits

Resource Description
Connection inactivity (keep-alive interval) For MQTT (or MQTT over WebSockets) connections, a client can request a keep-alive interval between 30 - 1200 seconds as part of the MQTT CONNECT message. AWS IoT starts the keep-alive timer for a client when sending CONNACK in response to the CONNECT message. This timer is reset whenever AWS IoT receives a PUBLISH, SUBSCRIBE, PING, or PUBACK message from the client. AWS IoT will disconnect a client whose keep-alive timer has reached 1.5x the specified keep-alive interval (i.e., by a factor of 1.5).The default keep-alive interval is 1200 seconds. If a client requests a keep-alive interval of zero, the default keep-alive interval will be used. If a client requests a keep-alive interval greater than 1200 seconds, the default keep-alive interval will be used. If a client requests a keep-alive interval shorter than 30 seconds but greater than zero, the server treats the client as though it requested a keep-alive interval of 30 seconds.
WebSocket connection duration WebSocket connections are limited to 24 hours. If the limit is exceeded, the WebSocket connection is automatically closed when an attempt is made to send a message by the client or server.
Maximum subscriptions per subscribe request A single SUBSCRIBE request is limited a maximum of eight subscriptions.
Message size The payload for every publish request is limited to 128 KB. The AWS IoT service rejects publish and connect requests larger than this size.
Client ID size 128 bytes of UTF-8 encoded characters.
Restricted client ID prefix $ is reserved for AWS IoT generated client IDs.
Topic size The topic passed to the AWS IoT when sending a publish request is limited to 256 bytes of UTF-8 encoded characters.
Restricted topic prefix Topics beginning with $ are reserved by AWS IoT and are not supported for publishing and subscribing except for using the specific topic names defined by AWS IoT services (i.e., Thing Shadow).
Maximum number of slashes in topic and topic filter A topic in a publish or subscribe request is limited to 7 forward slashes (/).

Device Shadow Limits

Maximum depth of JSON device state documents The maximum number of levels in the desired or reported section of the JSON device state document is 5. For example:
"desired": { "one": { "two": { "three": { "four": { "five":{ } } } } } }
Maximum number of in-flight, unacknowledged messages per thing

The Thing Shadows service supports up to 10 in-flight unacknowledged messages per thing. When this limit is reached, all new shadow requests are rejected with a 429 error code.

Maximum number of JSON objects per AWS account There is no limit on the number of JSON objects per AWS account.
Maximum size of a JSON state document 8 KB.
Maximum size of a thing name 128 bytes of UTF-8 encoded characters.
Shadow lifetime A thing shadow is deleted by AWS IoT up to six months after the creating account is deleted or per customer request. For operational purposes, AWS IoT service backups are kept for 6 months
Maximum number of shadows in an AWS account Unlimited
Requests per second per thing The Thing Shadows service supports up to 20 requests per second per thing. Note that this limit is per thing and not per API.

Amazon Kinesis Video Streams Limits

The limits below are either soft [s], which can be upgraded by submitting a support ticket, or hard [h], which cannot be increased.

Control Plane API limits

The following section describes limits for control-plane APIs.

When an account-level Request limit is reached, a ClientLimitExceededException is thrown.

When an account-level Streams limit is reached, or a stream-level limit is reached, a StreamLimitExceededException is thrown.

Control Plane API limits

API Account Limit: Request Account Limit: Streams Stream-level limit Relevant Exceptions and Notes
CreateStream 50 TPS [s] 100 streams per account [s] 5 TPS [h] Devices, CLIs, SDK-driven access and the console can all invoke this API. Only one API call succeeds if the stream doesn’t already exist.
DescribeStream 300 TPS [h] N/A 5 TPS [h]
UpdateStream 50 TPS [h] N/A 5 TPS [h]
ListStreams 300 TPS [h] N/A 5 TPS [h]
DeleteStream 50 TPS [h] N/A 5 TPS [h]
GetDataEndpoint 300 TPS [h] N/A 5 TPS [h] When combined with account limit, this implies a maximum of 60 streams can be Put to and Read from (with 4 consumers).

Data Plane API limits

The following section describes limits for control-plane APIs.

When a stream-level limit is exceeded, a StreamLimitExceededException is thrown.

When a connection-level limit is reached, a ConnectionLimitExceededException is thrown.

The following errors or acks are thrown when a fragment-level limit is reached:

  • A MIN_FRAGMENT_DURATION_REACHED ack is returned for a fragment below the minumum duration.

  • A MAX_FRAGMENT_DURATION_REACHED ack is returned for a fragment above the maximum duration.

  • A MAX_FRAGMENT_SIZE ack is returned for a fragment above the maximum data size.

  • A FragmentLimitExceeded exception is thrown if a fragment limit is reached in a GetMediaForFragmentList operation.

Data Plane API limits

API Stream-level limit Connection-level limit Bandwidth limit Fragment-level limit Relevant Exceptions and Notes
PutMedia 5 TPS [h] 1 [s] 12.5 MB/second, or 100 Mbps [s]
  • Minimum fragment duration: 1 second [h]

  • Maximum fragment duration: 10 seconds [h]

  • Maximum fragment size: 50 MB [h]

A typical PutMedia request will contain data for several seconds, resulting in a lower TPS per stream. In the case of multiple concurrent connections that exceed limits, the last connection is accepted.
GetMedia 5 TPS [h] 3 [s] 25 MB/s or 200 Mbps [s] N/A

Only three clients can concurrently receive content from the media stream at any moment of time. Further client connections are rejected. A unique consuming client shouldn’t need more than 2 or 3 TPS, since once the connection is established, we anticipate that the application will read continuously.

If a typical fragment is approximately 5 MB, this limit will mean ~75 MB/ sec per Kinesis video stream. Such a stream would have an outgoing bit rate of 2x the streams' maximum incoming bit rate.

ListFragments 5 TPS [h] 5 [s] N/A N/A Five fragment-based consuming applications can concurrently list fragments based on processing requirements.
GetMediaForFragmentList 5 TPS [h] 5 [s] 25 MB/s or 200 Mbps [s] Maximum number of fragments: 1000 [h] Five fragment-based consuming applications can concurrently get media. Further connections are rejected.

AWS Lambda Limits

Resource Limit
Concurrent executions 1000

For more information about these limits, see AWS Lambda Limits in the AWS Lambda Developer Guide.

AWS Lambda dynamically scales capacity in response to increased traffic, subject to your account's concurrent execution limit. For more information, see Managing Concurrency. To handle a burst in traffic, Lambda immediately increases your concurrently executing functions by a predetermined amount, dependent on which region it's executed (see table below).

If the default Immediate Concurrency Increase value, as noted in the table below, is not sufficient to accommodate the traffic surge, Lambda continues to increase the number of concurrent function executions by 500 per minute until your account safety limit has been reached or the number of concurrently executing functions is sufficient to successfully process the increased load.

Region Immediate Concurrency Increase (function executions)
Asia Pacific (Tokyo) 1000
Asia Pacific (Seoul) 500
Asia Pacific (Mumbai) 500
Asia Pacific (Singapore) 500

Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) Limits

Unless otherwise noted, submit a request to increase these limits.

Resource Default limit Comments

VPCs per region

5

Increasing this limit increases the limit on Internet gateways per region by the same amount. The multiple of the number of VPCs in the region and the number of security groups per VPC cannot exceed 5000.

Subnets per VPC

200

-

IPv4 CIDR blocks per VPC

5

This limit is made up of the primary CIDR block plus 4 secondary CIDR blocks.

IPv6 CIDR blocks per VPC

1

This limit cannot be increased.

Internet gateways per region

5

This limit is directly correlated with the limit on VPCs per region. To increase this limit, increase the limit on VPCs per region. Only one Internet gateway can be attached to a VPC at a time.

Egress-only Internet gateways per region 5 This limit is directly correlated with the limit on VPCs per region. To increase this limit, increase the limit on VPCs per region. Only one egress-only Internet gateway can be attached to a VPC at a time.

Virtual private gateways per region

5

Only one virtual private gateway can be attached to a VPC at a time.

Customer gateways per region

50

To increase this limit, contact AWS Support.

VPN connections per region

50

-

VPN connections per VPC (per virtual private gateway)

10

-

Route tables per VPC

200

This limit includes the main route table.

Routes per route table (non-propagated routes)

50

You can increase this limit up to a maximum of 100; however, network performance may be impacted. This limit is enforced separately for IPv4 routes and IPv6 routes (50 each, and a maximum of 100 each).

BGP advertised routes per route table (propagated routes)

100

This limit cannot be increased. If you require more than 100 prefixes, advertise a default route.

Elastic IP addresses per region for EC2-VPC

5

This is the limit for the number of Elastic IP addresses for use in EC2-VPC. For Elastic IP addresses for EC2-Classic, see Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) Limits.

Security groups per VPC

500

The multiple of the number of VPCs in the region and the number of security groups per VPC cannot exceed 5000.

Inbound or outbound rules per security group

50

You can have 50 inbound and 50 outbound rules per security group (giving a total of 100 rules). To change this limit, create a case in the AWS Support Center — a limit change applies to both inbound and outbound rules. The multiple of the limit for inbound or outbound rules per security group and the limit for security groups per network interface cannot exceed 250. For example, if you increase the limit to 100, we decrease your number of security groups per network interface to 2.

This limit is enforced separately for IPv4 rules and IPv6 rules. A rule that references a security group counts as one rule for IPv4 and one rule for IPv6.

Security groups per network interface

5

To increase or decrease this limit, contact AWS Support. The maximum is 16. The multiple of the limit for security groups per network interface and the limit for rules per security group cannot exceed 250. For example, if you increase the limit to 10, we decrease your number of rules per security group to 25.

Network interfaces per instance

-

This limit varies by instance type. For more information, see IP Addresses Per ENI Per Instance Type.

Network interfaces per region

350

This limit is the greater of either the default limit (350) or your On-Demand Instance limit multiplied by 5. The default limit for On-Demand Instances is 20. If your On-Demand Instance limit is below 70, the default limit of 350 applies. To increase this limit, submit a request or increase your On-Demand Instance limit.

Network ACLs per VPC

200

You can associate one network ACL to one or more subnets in a VPC. This limit is not the same as the number of rules per network ACL.

Rules per network ACL

20

This is the one-way limit for a single network ACL, where the limit for ingress rules is 20, and the limit for egress rules is 20. This limit includes both IPv4 and IPv6 rules, and includes the default deny rules (rule number 32767 for IPv4 and 32768 for IPv6, or an asterisk * in the Amazon VPC console).

This limit can be increased up to a maximum if 40; however, network performance may be impacted.

Active VPC peering connections per VPC

50

The maximum limit is 125 peering connections per VPC. The number of entries per route table should be increased accordingly; however, network performance may be impacted.

Outstanding VPC peering connection requests

25

This is the limit for the number of outstanding VPC peering connection requests that you've requested from your account. To increase this limit, contact AWS Support.

Expiry time for an unaccepted VPC peering connection request

1 week (168 hours)

To increase this limit, contact AWS Support.

VPC endpoints per region

20

You can have 20 interface endpoints and 20 gateway endpoints. The maximum limit for gateway endpoints is 255 endpoints per VPC, regardless of your endpoint limit per region.

Flow logs per single network interface, single subnet, or single VPC in a region

2 This limit cannot be increased. You can effectively have 6 flow logs per network interface if you create 2 flow logs for the subnet, and 2 flow logs for the VPC in which your network interface resides.
NAT gateways per Availability Zone 5 A NAT gateway in the pending, active, or deleting state counts against your limit.

For more information about these limits, see Amazon VPC Limits in the Amazon VPC User Guide.
