As part of our theme of Jan and Feb to have 10x scale readiness, we have been performing capacity planning and load testing to optimize our applications. Usually, these things are performed in a controlled environment and do not impact the production environment. In this case, one of our services had a loose end for 10x scaling. We have identified a couple of bottlenecks in that service and are taking steps to optimize this.
On a typical day, this will not be a concern even with a peak load, and the platform will function as expected.
