In this article, I would like to share the procedure to increase the Server Resource Quota for a SharePoint online site collection.

Server Resource Quota

As a SharePoint Online service administrator, you can specify a server resource quota. You can also specify the warning level at which you are sent an email alert that the site collection approaches its resource limit. The purpose of this quota is to set a maximum percentage of server resources (such as CPU and RAM) that your site collection should use. The quota helps prevent one site collection from depleting server resources, that might adversely affect performance for all site collections.

Procedure to increase the server resource Quota

Step 1: Open the "Microsoft Online Portal" (Admin Center) in your browser as in the following:

Step 2: Then click on the "Admin" dropdown on the portal. On the dropdown select the "SharePoint" as shown below:

Step 4: Then select the check boxes next to the site collections whose server resource quotas you want to change.

Step 7: In the dialog box enter a maximum number of resources on "Limit the server quota for each selected site collection to a maximum of" as in the following:

Step 8: After completing the changes, click on the "Save" button in the dialog box to save the changes.

Finally the server resource quota will be updated successfully.
