I am looking in to Canvas to package a third-party Web App and have a question on one of the documented Canvas limits.
The Canvas framework document says that it limits 'Number of Canvas calls per day per user (24–hour period)' to 5,000.

Does it say that the Web App can make up to 5,000 Salesforce Canvas SDK calls?
or Does it say that the Web App can make a total of 5,000 calls including the calls that are made to the third-party Web App's API server hosted outside Salesforce?

Please note that the third-party Web App (and its API server) is hosted in a thrid-party cloud infrastructure in its own domain.

Hi Manohar,

Please follow the link as this article will explain you limits

Hi Vikash,
That was the article I read and my question came about after reading that article.
The article says 'Number of Canvas calls per day per user (24–hour period)' limit is 5,000
and my question is whether this limit is only to Salesforce Canvas SDK calls that third-party App can make
or this limit includes the thrid-party Web App's own API (server) calls that are made to its server which is hosted in a third-party Web App's cloud infrastructure.

Any Updates on this limits?
I also would like know more about limits in canvas. Expecialy:
How many times user can visit page with canvas (I think, that this is included in canvas limits - 5000 API calls - 1 view 2 calls)
Limits 'Canvas calls per day per user (24–hour period)' limit is 5,000 is separeted from other API Requests?
Call javascript function publish, subscribe,.. is calculated in some limits?
Even i have same question,What is limit for the 3rd party application to query salesforce data base

The document is pretty clear now. See the highlighted sentences: 

Number of Canvas calls per day per user (24–hour period):  5,000 per user license in the org. This limit is shared across all users in the org. Requests from guest users don’t count against this limit. This limit tracks each Canvas app reload and signed request calls. Other API calls from the Canvas app are counted against the normal org API request limit. When you call a SignedRequest method, two calls are made—one for the method and one for internal logging. (
