Service limits are configuration parameters that define the operational boundaries of Event Hubs. The service limits available are similar to the ones offered for Azure Event Hubs Dedicated. By selecting the link(s) under Config value, you can change the assigned value.


You should spend time analyzing the full implications before changing service limits. Service limit changes may impact the behavior of your solution that consumes and produces events. Changes may also impact the resource consumption from your Azure Stack capacity.
