Free AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate SAA-C03 Practice Question

What is the impact on cost optimization when applying a throttling strategy to API requests within an AWS-hosted application?

  • Throttling ensures that the infrastructure is not scaled up due to temporary spikes, avoiding increased costs associated with scaling.

  • Applying throttling converts the pricing model to a flat-rate billing, simplifying cost management.

  • It enhances application monitoring capabilities, resulting in preventative cost savings.

  • Throttling discourages use of the application, thereby reducing the number of compute resources required.

  • Throttling substantially decreases latency, thereby directly reducing compute resource usage and associated costs.

  • By slowing down request processing, throttling increases the execution duration and thereby reduces costs.
