The date and time of the last provisioned throughput decrease for this table.

Type: Timestamp

Required: No

LastIncreaseDateTime

The date and time of the last provisioned throughput increase for this table.

Eventually consistent reads require less effort than strongly consistent reads, so a setting of 50 ReadCapacityUnits per second provides 100 eventually consistent ReadCapacityUnits per second.

Type: Long

Valid Range: Minimum value of 1.

Required: No

WriteCapacityUnits

The maximum number of writes consumed per second before DynamoDB returns a ThrottlingException.
