Error: AWS DynamoDB Provisioning Error

Rafal Wilinski

Answered by Rafal Wilinski

What's Causing This Error

In DynamoDB provisioning, you have to specify the amount of data writes and reads you require for the application per second. Therefore, errors may arise when the throughput exceeds the capacity of the index or the table. For instance, an unpredicted sudden spike in the read operations exceeding the specified read capacity can result in an error. Or this can happen when your request rate is too high.

Solution: Here's How To Resolve It

DynamoDB is capable of handling occasional spikes of throughput without much hassle. But your requests get throttled when the limit exceeds, and it will result in an exception. If your database workloads are unpredictable, you can use DynamoDB auto-scaling to manage the throughput capacity automatically. You can reduce the request frequency or use exponential backoff if your request rate is too high. Ensure you know about the burst capacity and request throttling to prevent such situations.
