Can I limit collection on a property?

Your subscription will include a limit on the number of pageviews that may be collected and retained on a monthly basis. If this limit is less than the total volume of traffic received by your website, it is important to configure the sample rates to ensure that this allowance is not completely used before the end of the month.

Where multiple properties are configured in an account, it is also possible to set upper limits on the number of pageviews that will be collected and retained by an individual property, to ensure that it doesn’t consume the total allowance for the account.

This can be edited at any time under Collection Limit inside Property Settings, which can be found by going to Settings > Properties and clicking the Edit icon next to the relevant property that you want to configure a limit for. Enter the desired Collection Limit, or tick the corresponding Unlimited checkbox if no limits are required. These limits must be less than or equal to the total collection and retention limits for the account. Once happy, click Save Property.

Please note: If any of the above options do not appear, they may not have been enabled on your subscription. Please contact your Account Manager to discuss available sampling options.
