The number of API calls depends on the size of the account and number of resources within it. For most of our users, we see an average of 200 - 300 calls being made. These include all of the "list" calls that allow us to gain visibility into the overall number of resources, as well as "describe" calls that are made on a per-resource basis to get additional configuration data. For example, in AWS, if you have 1000 S3 buckets, CSPM will first need to make a few paginated API calls to discover the bucket names, then iterate through each bucket to query for configuration details such as logging status, whether encryption is enabled, etc.
