You can log on to the Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) console to query quota usage of elastic IP addresses (EIPs). If the quota of a resource does not meet your business requirements, you can request a quota increase. You can also increase API quotas in the VPC console. This allows you to call more EIP operations within a specific time period.
