Storage and Query Allocation (Coveo for Commerce)

This article presents index item storage and queries per second limits associated with the Coveo for Commerce solution.

Storage

The storage allocation for a Coveo for Commerce customer is limited to a certain number of index items per Coveo Cloud production organization. An item is an element of content in the Coveo Cloud index such as a document, an email, an HTML page, or a database record.

Each customer is allocated items in their catalog based on the number specified in purchase order and the information in the following table.

Queries per Second

Coveo for Commerce keeps track of the amount of queries sent every second to the Coveo Cloud platform. When the amount of queries per second (expressed in QPS) stays higher than the amount specified in the purchase order or the table below for one minute or more, the usage is considered over the limit.
