Quotas and limits

This document lists the quotas and limits that apply to Blockchain Node Engine. For more information on quotas, see Virtual Private Cloud quotas.

A quota restricts how much of a shared Google Cloud resource your Google Cloud project can use, including hardware, software, and network components. Therefore, quotas are a part of a system that does the following:

  • Monitors your use or consumption of Google Cloud products and services.
  • Restricts your consumption of those resources, for reasons that include ensuring fairness and reducing spikes in usage.
  • Maintains configurations that automatically enforce prescribed restrictions.
  • Provides a means to request or make changes to the quota.

In most cases, when a quota is exceeded, the system immediately blocks access to the relevant Google resource, and the task that you're trying to perform fails. In most cases, quotas apply to each Google Cloud project and are shared across all applications and IP addresses that use that Google Cloud project.

There are also limits on Blockchain Node Engine resources. These limits are unrelated to the quota system. Limits cannot be changed unless otherwise stated.

Allocation quotas

The following quotas don't reset over time and instead are released when you release the resource:

Quotas Value
Blockchain nodes per project per location 24
Ethereum archive nodes per project per location 12
Ethereum full nodes per project per location 16
Polygon sentry archive nodes per project per location 12
Polygon sentry full nodes per project per location 16

Request quotas

The following quotas apply to Blockchain Node Engine requests:

Quota Value
Blockchain node API per minute per project 38,400
Control plane API per minute per project 240

Request a quota increase

To increase or decrease most quotas, use the Google Cloud console. For more information, see Request a higher quota.
