Free AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate SAA-C03 Practice Question

A company has deployed an application across multiple Availability Zones in a standby environment that heavily relies on Amazon DynamoDB. The application has a sudden increase in traffic and starts to experience throttling. The Solutions Architect needs to ensure that the application can handle future unexpected spikes in traffic without being throttled. What should the Solutions Architect do to prevent DynamoDB throttling and maintain the application’s performance?

  • Increase the provisioned read/write capacity units for the DynamoDB table to handle higher levels of traffic without throttling.

  • Implement a monitoring solution using Amazon CloudWatch to track the throttling events.

  • Request a service quota increase for DynamoDB in the AWS Management Console.

  • Apply an exponential backoff algorithm in the application logic to handle throttling events as they happen.
