Manage org quotas
Org Managers are free to configure your org’s quota capacity among your spaces and applications as you see fit. This enables Org Managers to limit usage and corresponding costs.
Updating a quota
To change your org quota, please have an Org Manager send a quota change request email. This email link will pre-populate required information.
You can request an increase in number of application routes or service instances with no cost impact. Increasing or decreasing org memory quota changes your maximum usage costs.

Tracking quota usage
You can use the following
cf CLI plugins to help identify the right quota to set for your org. They are available from the CF-Community plugin site:
cf add-plugin-repo CF-Community https://plugins.cloudfoundry.org/
The Usage Report plugin gives you a report of how your quota is used across visible organizations and spaces. To install:
cf install-plugin 'Usage Report' -r CF-Community
The Statistics plugin gives you real-time visibility of the actual memory usage for each application instance compared to the memory limit. To install:
cf install-plugin Statistics -r CF-Community
You can use these two in combination to get a good sense of where you can lower instance memory limits to make room for more instances elsewhere in your org or just reduce your quota to reduce costs.
