Step 5 - Increase the capacity of the table

Run the following AWS CLI command to increase the write capacity units and read capacity units from 5 to 100.

aws dynamodb update-table --table-name logfile \
--provisioned-throughput ReadCapacityUnits=100,WriteCapacityUnits=100

Run the command to wait until the table becomes Active.

time aws dynamodb wait table-exists --table-name logfile

Topic for discussion: How long did it take to increase the capacity? Was it faster, or longer than you expected? Often, when you need more capacity from your provisioned throughput table it is available in only tens of seconds.
