Why am I getting a throughput exceeded warning for a Kinesis stream?

I received a warning message indicating that the throughput for a Kinesis stream has been exceeded. What could be the reason behind this warning?

  • The warning indicates that the throughput limit for the Kinesis stream has been exceeded.
  • This can happen when the incoming data rate is higher than the provisioned throughput capacity of the stream.
  • It is expected behavior when the stream reaches its limit.
