I would like to understand better the possible ways to monitor proactivately a Salesforce org. Below a list of the current alerts that are known to me:

  • API Usage Notifications (standard)
  • Trust status subscription (standard) in order to be alerted about service disruptions, performance degradations and maintenances
  • Custom alert regarding DailyBulkAPIRequests limits

Do you happen to know any other alert that can be set - even not out of the box - or any other standard notification that is sent when limits are exceeded?



Apart from the ways mentioned by Mr.Frodo,you can also call a rest endpoint to get all these details.

Limits that you can get with this method.

  • ConcurrentAsyncGetReportInstances
  • ConcurrentSyncReportRuns
  • DailyAnalyticsDataflowJobExecutions
  • DailyApiRequests
  • DailyAsyncApexExecutions
  • DailyBulkApiRequests
  • DailyDurableGenericStreamingApiEvents
  • DailyDurableStreamingApiEvents
  • DailyGenericStreamingApiEvents
  • DailyStreamingApiEvents
  • DailyWorkflowEmails
  • DataStorageMB
  • DurableStreamingApiConcurrentClients
  • FileStorageMB
  • HourlyAsyncReportRuns
  • HourlyDashboardRefreshes
  • HourlyDashboardResults
  • HourlyDashboardStatuses
  • HourlyODataCallout
  • HourlySyncReportRuns
  • HourlyTimeBasedWorkflow
  • MassEmail
  • Package2VersionCreates
  • PermissionSets
  • SingleEmail
  • StreamingApiConcurrentClients

You can periodically(scheduler) call the rest endpoint and get data and manually send the notifications for limits that can near exhaustion.

  • But you have to be careful, because some limits (like Async Apex Executions) will block the monitoring job for going off if they're exceeded first! – David Reed Jun 19 '18 at 11:37
  • Yeah.. should look for this caveats. – Pranay Jaiswal Jun 19 '18 at 11:41

There are many tools salesforce provides for monitoring the limits. you can go to monitoring section in salesforce and look for System overview. System overview will give you an overall view of Limits important limits in org.
