I'm trying to understand more about databases and am taking a course that calculates throughput throughout. An example for a DynamoDb table looks like...
our application requires us to read 10 items of 6KB / second, what should we set the throughput for?
Coming at this from a web dev's perspective I want to understand what is happening here.
Is this saying that if someone requests 10 items from our DB we want them to be able to get 6KB worth of data per second for each item?
So if those 10 items total size is 100 KB and we have our DB configured to read 6 KB of data per second, it will take about 17 seconds to perform that read operation (100/6)?
Am I understanding the requirements correctly or do I have something fundamentally wrong? I want to make sure I have this concept down before moving on.
