Rafal Wilinski

Answered by Rafal Wilinski

What's Causing This Error

This error can be caused by a variety of issues, such as:

  • Incorrectly specifying the value of the limit parameter in the scan request.
  • Not having enough read capacity units provisioned for the table.
  • Issues with the IAM role associated with the request.
  • Errors with the SDK being used.
  • The table is experiencing heavy read traffic.

Solution: Here's How To Resolve It

To solve this error, you can take the following steps:

  • Check the value of the "limit" parameter in the scan request and ensure it is set correctly.
  • Check the read capacity units provisioned for the table and ensure that it is sufficient for the read traffic.
  • Check the IAM role associated with the request to ensure it has the necessary permissions to read the table.
  • Verify that the SDK being used is configured correctly and that all necessary dependencies are installed.
  • If the table is experiencing heavy read traffic, consider using DynamoDB Auto Scaling to adjust the provisioned throughput automatically.
  • If the issue persists, you may contact AWS support for further assistance.
  • Additionally, you can use CloudWatch logs to check the logs and troubleshoot the issue.
  • It is important to check the settings of the scan request and the provisioned capacity units to ensure that they are sufficient for the read traffic and support the limit specified.
