Kinesis Data Analytics for Apache Flink and Studio Notebook Quota - Amazon Kinesis Data Analytics

Kinesis Data Analytics for Apache Flink and Studio Notebook Quota

When working with Amazon Kinesis Data Analytics for Apache Flink, note the following quota:

  • You can create up to 50 Kinesis Data Analytics applications per Region in your account. You can create a case to request additional applications via the service quota increase form. For more information, see the AWS Support Center.

    For a list of Regions that support Kinesis Data Analytics, see Kinesis Data Analytics Regions and Endpoints.


  • The number of Kinesis processing units (KPU) is limited to 32 by default. For instructions on how to request an increase to this quota, see To request a quota increase in Service Quotas. Make sure you specify the application prefix to which the new KPU limit needs to be applied.


    With Kinesis Data Analytics, your AWS account is charged for allocated resources, rather than resources that your application uses. You are charged an hourly rate based on the maximum number of KPUs that are used to run your stream-processing application. A single KPU provides you with 1 vCPU and 4 GiB of memory. For each KPU, the service also provisions 50 GiB of running application storage.


  • You can create up to 1,000 Kinesis Data Analytics Snapshots per application.


  • You can assign up to 50 tags per application.


  • The maximum size for an application JAR file is 512 MiB. If you exceed this quota, your application will fail to start.


For Studio notebooks, the following quotas apply. To request higher quotas, create a support case.

  • websocketMessageSize = 5 MiB

  • noteSize = 5 MiB

  • noteCount = 1000

  • Max cumulative UDF size = 100 MiB

  • Max cumulative dependency jar size = 300 MiB
