View and manage Amazon EKS and Fargate service quotas

Amazon EKS has integrated with Service Quotas, an Amazon service that you can use to view and manage your quotas from a central location. For more information, see What Is Service Quotas? in the Service Quotas User Guide. With Service Quotas integration, you can quickly look up the value of your Amazon EKS and Amazon Fargate service quotas using the Amazon Web Services Management Console and Amazon CLI.

Amazon Web Services Management Console

To work more with service quotas using the Amazon Web Services Management Console, see the Service Quotas User Guide. To request a quota increase, see Requesting a Quota Increase in the Service Quotas User Guide.

Amazon CLI
To view Amazon EKS and Fargate service quotas using the Amazon CLI

Run the following command to view your Amazon EKS quotas.

aws service-quotas list-aws-default-service-quotas \ --query 'Quotas[*].{Adjustable:Adjustable,Name:QuotaName,Value:Value,Code:QuotaCode}' \ --service-code eks \ --output table

Run the following command to view your Fargate quotas.

aws service-quotas list-aws-default-service-quotas \ --query 'Quotas[*].{Adjustable:Adjustable,Name:QuotaName,Value:Value,Code:QuotaCode}' \ --service-code fargate \ --output table
Note

The quota returned is the number of Amazon ECS tasks or Amazon EKS Pods that can run concurrently on Fargate in this account in the current Amazon Web Services Region.

To work more with service quotas using the Amazon CLI, see service-quotas in the Amazon CLI Command Reference. To request a quota increase, see the request-service-quota-increase command in the Amazon CLI Command Reference.

Amazon Fargate service quotas

The Amazon Fargate service in the Service Quotas console lists several service quotas. The following table only describes the quota that is applicable to Amazon EKS. You can configure alarms that alert you when your usage approaches a service quota. For more information, see Creating a CloudWatch alarm to monitor Fargate resource usage metrics.

New Amazon Web Services accounts might have lower initial quotas that can increase over time. Fargate constantly monitors the account usage within each Amazon Web Services Region, and then automatically increases the quotas based on the usage. You can also request a quota increase for values that are shown as adjustable. For more information, see Requesting a quota increase in the Service Quotas User Guide.

Name Default Adjustable Description

Fargate On-Demand vCPU resource count

6 Yes

The number of Fargate vCPUs that can run concurrently as Fargate On-Demand in this account in the current Region.

Note

The default values are the initial quotas set by Amazon. These default values are separate from the actual applied quota values and maximum possible service quotas. For more information, see Terminology in Service Quotas in the Service Quotas User Guide.

Fargate additionally enforces Amazon ECS tasks and Amazon EKS Pods launch rate quotas. For more information, see Amazon Fargate throttling quotas in the Amazon ECS guide.
