Static API Throttling or Elastic API Scaling


Static API throttling and elastic API scaling are complementary design techniques.

Static API Throttling

Static throttle limits ensure that you can limit aggregate maximum demand and rightsize back-end capacity for worst-case load. API gateways enforce a choke point that can shape traffic volume and ensure back-end target service infrastructure is not overwhelmed. Throttle limits may be defined per user and per API, and API traffic routing rules can allocate demand across multiple static service infrastructure environments.

DevOp teams rely on usage monitoring and alerts to help them proactively scale infrastructure components. With adequate lead time, teams can manually provision additional capacity and scale static environments.
