What's Causing This Error
This error message indicates an issue with the rate at which requests are being made to the DynamoDB service.
Specifically, it indicates that the requests are being made at a rate that exceeds the DynamoDB service's provisioned throughput. For example, this can happen if the rate of requests exceeds the number of reads or write capacity units provisioned for the table or if the number of requests exceeds the maximum allowed by the service.
Solution: Here's How To Resolve It
To solve this error:
- Check the rate of requests being made to the DynamoDB service and ensure that it does not exceed the provisioned throughput.
- Use CloudWatch to monitor the usage of your tables and adjust the provisioned throughput as needed.
- Use the Exponential Backoff algorithm to handle the throttling error and retry the requests with an increasing delay between each retry.
- Use the
client.get_waiter()function to wait for the table to become active before operating.
client = boto3.client('dynamodb') waiter = client.get_waiter('table_exists') waiter.wait(TableName='your-table-name')
