What is the total size limit for Azure Key Vault?

What is the total size limit for Azure Key Vault? The max size for individual secrets appears to be 25,600 bytes, and everything that I've read answering this specific question says that this is also the cumulative limit of a single standard key vault. However, this does not seem to actually be the case. I seem to be able to exceed this alleged total limit across multiple secrets. So what is the actual total limit? And is there somewhere in the Azure Portal that I can view the limit for my Key Vault? And it's current cumulative size?

    Hi @Knock Knock ,

    Key Vault as resource does not have a size and does not vary. You are correct that there is no cumulative limit for the Key Vault itself. Key Vault objects instead, have size restrictions. For instance:

    For secrets, the size limit is 25K and it's the same in both SKUs as described in the service limits article.
