Salesforce Governor Limits

Since Salesforce keeps running on the multi-tenure condition and so as to have a similar presentation to the database, it has forced some runtime limits called governor limits. Governor limits are runtime limits authorized by the Apex runtime engine to guarantee that code doesn't get out of hand. Governor limits are Salesforce's method for compelling you to compose effectively, versatile code. Governor limits counteract different organizations from reviewing terrible code and taking all the cloud CPU. Coding limits when all is said in done are totally novel to Apex – think of it as professional stability!

Governor Limits are calculated by a number of factors that determine what limit is used, and when it is applied based on the Invocation of Apex-Entry, No.of Records, Which limit to use.

There are different kinds of Governor limits like

  • Execution Governors and Limits.
