Error: ProvisionedThroughputExceededException DynamoDB

What's Causing This Error

This error occurs when the request rate is too high for DynamoDB to process with your provisioned throughput (WCU, RCU).

Solution: Here's How To Resolve It

There are a few ways to solve this error:

  1. Reduce the rate at which your requests are sent.
  2. In case of an error, do not immediately retry. Instead, use an exponential backoff algorithm for retries in DynamoDB.
  3. Increase the provisioned RCU and WCU to match the requirements.
  4. Create an autoscaling policy that automatically provides more throughput to keep up with the demand.
