View Free plan information

Exceeded rate limits

If you exceed your plan’s rate limits, InfluxDB Cloud 2.0 provides a notification in the InfluxDB Cloud user interface (UI) and adds a rate limit event to your Usage page for review.

All rate-limited requests are rejected; including both read and write requests. Rate-limited requests are not queued.

To remove rate limits, upgrade to a Pay As You Go Plan.

Rate-limited HTTP response code

When a request exceeds your plan’s rate limit, the InfluxDB API returns the following response:

HTTP 429 “Too Many Requests”
Retry-After: xxx (seconds to wait before retrying the request)

Billing cycle

Billing occurs on the first day of the month for the previous month. For example, if you start the Pay As You Go plan on September 15, you’re billed on October 1 for your usage from September 15-30.
