If I have a record that is updated every 5 minutes, and I have field history enabled on the field changing, will I run into any field history tracking limits?

Ex. Does Salesforce only store X number of changes per record in the field history?

    On top of my head, no, I had for a record which was changing every 10 seconds for 3 months just to test the extent the field history was tracked, It never failed me. – Pranay Jaiswal Oct 15 '18 at 19:18

    Field History is built on a standard BigObject, so theoretically it can scale to hundreds of millions of rows or more. – David Reed Oct 15 '18 at 19:27

You can select certain fields to track and display the field history in the History related list of an object. The field history data is retained for up to 18 months.
