Review and resolve plan limit overages

If you exceed your plan’s adjustable quotas or limits, you’ll receive a notification in the InfluxDB Cloud user interface (UI) Usage page.

If you exceed the series cardinality limit, InfluxDB adds a rate limit event warning on the Usage page, and begins to reject write requests with new series. To start processing write requests again, do the following as needed:

Write and query limits (HTTP response code)

When a request exceeds your plan’s write requests (Data In) or query requests (Reads) within a five minute window, 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 Usage-based Plan on September 15, you’re billed on October 1 for your usage from September 15-30.

Declined or late payments

Initial declined paymentWe’ll retry charge every 72 hours. During this period, update your payment method to successfully process your payment.
