I wrote a comprehensive - and yet short - article on dealing with traffic volumes Traffic Shedding, Rate Limiting, Backpressure, Oh My! Options to avoid overloading of web applications. eg. scaling, overprovisioning, queuing, rate-limiting, backpressure, shedding.
In a way it's surprising how limited your options are: scale, overprovision, queue; traffic shedding, rate limiting, backpressure. That's it in entirety.

What isn't limited is how this affects your architecture. Being able to scale is itself challenging. Being able to autoscale needs you to understand what metrics determine when you need more (or fewer) resources allocated. Architecting to achieve a queueable application is fundamentally different from the ground up.

So although avoiding overload only has the 6 options listed, achieving it is not as easy as that might make it seem.

Now on to all the usual newsletter list of links, tips, tools, news and articles below, and as usual I've extracted all the tips into this month's tips page . Note that several of these relate to Java 16, and I've also added them to last month's Java 16 special so that all the Java 16 related info is there
