Limits on use of queries

We put limits on the number of Live Discover queries you can run in a set time.

The limits for each Sophos Central account are currently as follows.

For scheduled and API queries combined:

  • Up to 1,000 queries per day.
  • Up to 10 queries per minute.

For queries that you run in the Live Discover user interface:

  • No limit on queries per day.
  • Up to 15 queries per minute.

If your account exceeds a limit, the Telemetry report in Live Discover shows an error message:

You've exceeded the number of queries that your account can run in a set time.
