Error: DynamoDB throttling error
What's Causing This Error
The DynamoDB throttling error occurs when the number of requests made to a DynamoDB table exceeds the table's provisioned throughput. This can be caused by a high volume of requests or a large number of requests being made concurrently.
Solution: Here's How To Resolve It
To solve this error, you can take the following steps:
- Check the provisioned throughput on the table and increase it if necessary.
- Implement exponential backoff to handle retries for failed requests.
- Limit the number of requests being made concurrently by adding a rate limiter.
- Spread requests over time by adding a delay between requests.
- Monitor your CloudWatch metrics for the DynamoDB table to see if you exceed the read and write capacity units.
- If the issue persists, you may contact AWS support for further assistance.
- Additionally, you can use DynamoDB Auto Scaling to automatically adjust your table's provisioned throughput to handle any traffic increase without the need for manual intervention.
- If you expect a spike in traffic, you can temporarily increase your provisioned throughput before the spike to ensure that your table can handle the additional traffic.
