FAQ

Q: Why should I track my service usage against limits?

A: Tracking your usage against AWS service limits will show you whether you are approaching a given limit so you can proactively request a service limit increase before you exceed a limit.

Q: Can AWS Limit Monitor check limits in multiple accounts?

A: Yes. The solution includes a spoke template you can deploy in secondary accounts to monitor resource usage in secondary accounts and send notification as you approach limits.

Q: Can I specify what services to monitor?

A: Yes. By default, this solution checks all service limits that Trusted Advisor checks. But, you can specify which service limits you want to check in both the primary and secondary accounts. For more information, see the implementation guide.

Q: Do I need premium support to use AWS Limit Monitor?

A: To use this solution, each account must have a Business- or Enterprise-level AWS Support plan.

Q: Can I deploy the AWS Limit Monitor in any AWS Region?

A: You must launch this solution’s AWS CloudFormation templates in the US East (N. Virginia) Region. However, once deployed, the solution will monitor limits for all regions in the account.

AWS Limit Monitor & Service Quotas

Service Quotas is a feature in the AWS Management Console that gives you an in-console experience for managing your service quotas, and automates some of the features in AWS Limit Monitor. Service Quotas consolidates the AWS default values and your account specific values for service quotas across AWS services in one single location. Service Quotas gives you visibility to your current service quotas, and makes the process of requesting quota increases easier. You simply search for a service quota and put in your desired value to submit a quota increase request. You can proactively manage your service quotas by configuring Amazon CloudWatch alarms that monitor usage and alert you when your usage approaches the quotas. Service Quotas also integrates with AWS Organizations to help you easily set up quotas in new accounts. Using Service Quotas, you just configure a pre-defined quotas request template that will be applied to new accounts that you create via AWS Organizations. The template saves you time and effort in requesting quota increases while ensuring consistent configuration of new accounts in accordance with your workloads. You can access Service Quotas through the AWS console, and via AWS APIs and CLI. Service Quotas is available at no additional charge.
