Quotas are enforced for service resources on the platform to prevent unforeseen spikes in resource usage. For example, the maximum number of ECSs that can be created varies depending on the flavor. You can apply for increasing quotas if necessary.

This section describes how to view the usage of each type of ECS resource and the total quotas in a specified region.


  1. Log in to the management console.
  2. Click in the upper left corner and select the desired region and project.
  3. In the upper right corner of the page, click .

    The Service Quota page is displayed.

  4. View the used and total quota of each type of ECS resource.

    If a quota cannot meet service requirements, click Increase Quota to adjust it.

How Do I Apply for a Higher Quota?

The system does not support online quota adjustment. If you need to adjust a quota, dial the hotline number or send an email to the customer service mailbox. Customer service personnel will timely process your application for quota adjustment and inform you of the real-time progress by making a call or sending an email.

You need to prepare the following information before dialing the hotline number or sending an email:
  • Domain name, project name, and project ID, which can be obtained by performing the following operations:

    Log in to the management console using the cloud account, click the account name in the upper-right corner, choose My Credential from the drop-down list, and obtain the domain name, project name, and project ID on the My Credential page.

  • Quota information, which includes:
    • Service name
    • Quota type
    • Required quota
