Automated Functional Test are not representative of actual usage, causing throttle
For skills that preserve a user's state to DynamoDB, the automated functional tests that are performed often get throttled by Dynamo and fail.
This occurs frequently on skills that have large interaction models and support multiple locales. Typical usage does not require a lot of Dynamo capacity so we often have to raise the capacity just to get through the functional test and lower it back down.
Please slow down the tests. The capacity required is calculated based on actual usage, not automated functional tests that overload the skill.
