This topic describes the credit consumption and analysis limits when network analysis is performed in ArcGIS Online.

## Credit consumption

Credits are the currency used across ArcGIS and are consumed for specific transactions and types of storage, such as storing features, performing analysis, and using premium content.

Learn more about credits and how they are administered.

### When are credits consumed

Credits are consumed while performing network analysis in the following situations:

- Network analysis network data source is hosted in ArcGIS Online.
- Your ArcGIS Enterprise portal routing services are configured using ArcGIS Online.

##### Note:

The analysis does not consume credits if the network data source is a network dataset stored on a local machine or you are using your own routing services published on your ArcGIS Enterprise portal.

### Network analysis type and credits

The table below describes the number of credits each network analysis type consumes.

##### Caution:

Credit rates may change. See Credits by capability for current rates.

Analysis type | Map Viewer capability | Developer capability | Credit consumption | Example |
---|---|---|---|---|

Closest Facility | (Find Nearest in Map Viewer Classic.) | 0.5 credits per closest facilities route. | If there are 10 incident points and 2 facilities, the cost will be 5 credits if all 10 incident points can be successfully routed to a facility. | |

Fleet Routing | 1 credit per vehicle route. | If you're routing 5 vehicles through 100 total stops, the cost will be 5 credits. | ||

Location Allocation | 0.1 credits per allocated demand point. | If there are 5 facilities to evaluate and 100 demand points to allocate to those facilities, the cost will be 10 credits. | ||

Optimized Routes | Get directions with Optimize order in Map Viewer Classic | 0.5 credits per optimized route. | For these routes, if you choose the option to reorder the stops to optimize travel time, the cost will be 0.5 credits. If there are 3 stops, the cost of the route will be 0.5 credits. If there are 10 stops, the cost of the route remains 0.5 credits. | |

Origin Destination Cost Matrix | (Connect Origins to Destinations in Map Viewer Classic.) | 0.0005 credits per input origin and destination pair. | If there are 100 origins and 200 destinations, the cost will be 10 credits. If you specify a cutoff, or limit the number of destinations, such as to find only the 5 closest destinations within 10 minutes of every origin, the cost will still be 10 credits, as the credits depend on the number of input origin-destination pairs. | |

Service Areas | (Create Drive-Time Areas in Map Viewer Classic.) | 0.5 credits per service area. | If there are 10 facilities and you specify drive times of 5 and 10 minutes, the cost will be 10 credits. | |

Simple Routes | 0.005 credits per simple route. | For these routes, the order of stops is determined by the order of the records in the stops table. If there are 2 stops, the cost of the route will be 0.005 credits. If there are 10 stops, the cost of the route remains 0.005 credits. |

### Estimate credits

When performing analysis using a network analysis layer, you can estimate credit usage as follows:

- Estimate Credits button—Each network analysis layer ribbon has an Estimate Credits button . Click this button to estimate the number of credits that will be consumed by the analysis. Learn more about estimate credits.
- Geoprocessing tool window—At the top of the Solve geoprocessing tool window, click the Click to estimate credits link in the banner to estimate the number of credits that will be consumed when solving the input network analysis layer. The credit estimation banner does not appear if solving the input network analysis layer does not consume credits.

## Analysis limits

When a network analysis uses the ArcGIS Online routing services as the network data source, some limits are imposed on the analysis for better performance. For example, you cannot exceed a specified number of allowed inputs for each analysis type. If you need to solve an analysis of a size that exceeds the analysis limits, consider using one of the following approaches:

- To solve a large problem, split it into smaller sections first.
- For better performance and to avoid overloading the server, eliminate irrelevant data. For example, if you are solving an OD Cost Matrix analysis with a travel distance limit of 10 miles, use the Select Layer By Location tool to preselect only destinations that fall within a 10-mile straight-line distance of origins.
To learn more, see tools and code samples for solving large network analysis problems in ArcGIS Pro.

- Use a local network dataset or your own routing services published on your ArcGIS Enterprise portal as the network data source instead of ArcGIS Online routing services.

The following sections describe the usage limits for each solver:

##### Note:

When performing analysis in Python using the Network Analyst module, arcpy.nax, use the GetWebToolInfo function to retrieve the analysis limits for a solver in the routing utility services registered with your portal.
