Edge agent and resource limits


How does the edge agent and workflows impact the resource limitations in terms of payload count, etc?


Edge Workflows only consume payloads when you do something that results in data being received by Losant’s cloud. This typically involves using the Device State and MQTT Outputs Nodes.

This is by design since a primary use case for Edge Workflows is to pre-process high frequency data and report aggregates less often using the Device State Node.

Therefore, if the Edge Workflow never sends data to Losant’s cloud, then no payloads will ever be consumed. It does, however, still count as a device for each account’s device limit.
