Pod limits do not apply to serverless indexes. Pinecone auto-scales serverless indexes based on usage, and you pay only for what you use.

If you are a project owner, follow these steps to set or change the maximum total number of pods allowed across all pod-based indexes in your project:

  1. In the Pinecone console, got to Settings > Projects.
  2. Click the Configure Project icon next to the project you want to update.
  3. Enter a Pod Limit. The default pod limit is 5.
  4. Click Save Changes.
