The document upload limits are mentioned in the Help section. Based on my experience with salesforce.com, I'd make the following statement: bandwidth and server utilization is generally considered "unlimited" in the sense that you would be almost guaranteed to trip over other limits (API calls per day, workflow rules per day, etc) before you'd actually cause a bandwidth issue.

 

Most "normal" usage patterns are perfectly fine, and I'd wager there's very few "setups that would not have been permitted. The most usual case for an organization getting in trouble for breaking limits involves those cases where the limit being broken was due to a technical problem, such as a malfunctioning integration.

 

If you have any questions or concerns about bandwidth limits, I suggest you log a case and ask Support directly for an answer.

There's a 5 MB limit on file uploads by default (which can be increased by contacting support), but there's no specific artificial bandwidth limitation. If you're consuming too many resources, salesforce.com would let you know. Salesforce.com has (I believe) a 64 Gbps connection into their datacenter, so there is, of course, an actual limit, but most people don't have that kind of bandwidth.

Hi, thanks for your reply.

But where do you get the information of the 5M limit on uploading files?

I search some place, on the offical web, online help and the community, but I have not found the information, so please tell me, thanks.
