Sudden surges in network traffic—regardless of the reason—can severely impact the performance of an API, even to the point of overwhelming it. Apigee has a built-in policy capable of handling such surges: the Spike Arrest policy. In this hands-on lab, we'll implement the Spike Arrest policy and configure it so that traffic is throttled on a per-developer basis.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
