Infrastructure capacity management requests, like increasing or decreasing the number of Message Processors based on expected API traffic volume, are meant to manage the infrastructure capacity in Apigee X.

  1. Estimate the maximum traffic volume expected during the time period along with the maximum payload.
  2. Perform stress/load testing on your API proxies with the estimated maximum volume of traffic and payload. Resolve any issues observed during the testing.

    1. Apigee X organization details:
      • Google Cloud Project ID
      • Apigee X organization name
    2. Details of the event with dates when the higher traffic volume is expected
      • Event start date
      • Event end date
    3. The maximum traffic volume and payload size expected
    4. References to any previous support tickets when the load/stress testing was performed
    5. Any other details which Apigee Support needs to be aware of
