Today, everything is available online, and people tend to turn to the internet for even the smallest things. We see new products and websites popping up every day, catering to specific needs, from groceries to online studying. This leads to an increasing number of users coming online to use these services, leading to a surge in traffic to websites and web applications.
When launching a product or website, we often have estimates, but sometimes these estimates are exceeded, leading to overload scenarios. For instance, after the announcement of ChatGPT 3.5, there was a massive influx of traffic and interest from people all around the world. The sudden surge of visitors surpassed their limits and buffers, leading to a website downtime. In such situations, it is essential to have load management in place to avoid possible business loss.
