Anytime user can increase or decrease the provision capacity from DynamoDB web console and it will reflect immediately. Sounds all good....... Or not? What if you set provisioned capacity to 50 req per second but load on the server crosses 100 req per second? Requests gets throttled!! Mostly times out. What's worse?

Keep clicking continue until you get to monitoring console. Click on the logging. This is where you will get all the logs from your application server. Step 2: Download authentication key Navigate backt to .
