Supermetrics Query Executions
The daily quota for Supermetrics query executions is 1,500 for Pro users and 3,000 for Super Pro users. If you reach your daily limit, you get an error message "Warning: Daily Supermetrics quota exceeded" when you create new or refresh existing queries. The daily quota is reset at midnight Eastern European Time (UTC+2).
Data Source API requests
The various data sources usually have their own limits on API requests per account or resource per period of time. If you reach your daily limit, you get an error message "Daily [data source] quota exceeded for ID [profile], try again later." when you create new or refresh queries using this data source. Note that a single Supermetrics query execution can result in many requests to the data source API, depending on the selected metrics and dimensions.
Finding Your Request Usage
There is a feature in Team Management that allows you to report on your usage so you can check, both for Supermetrics requests and data source request. See the Viewing Your Account Usage article for more information.

If you experience any of your data source quotas hitting their limit, there are a couple of steps that you can do to to help reduce the request numbers:
- Try to shorten the data ranges.
- Remove any unneeded fields from the query.
- Use fewer pages/views/accounts at once. Split into their own queries.
- If using Sheets, utilize the "Combine new results with old" feature - by first fetching the whole data range (with all the historic data you need), then modify the query by shortening the date range in to for example last 2 days and selecting "Combine new results with old" from the Options menu. After this your query refresh only brings you the new data and this lightens your query significantly. **Please note that you need to have "date" as one of the split by dimensions for this to work.
