  20. 20. Sample Questions
  21. 21. Sample SA – Associate question You are architecting a website for viewers of a commercial to complete a survey. The survey is an interactive PHP application, displaying dynamic set of questions to each viewer. Which architecture will use Auto Scaling to scale out during periods of peak demand, while providing a cost optimized solution:
  22. 22. Sample SA – Associate question You are architecting a website for viewers of a commercial to complete a survey. The survey is an interactive PHP application, displaying dynamic set of questions to each viewer. Which architecture will use Auto Scaling to scale out during periods of peak demand, while providing a cost optimized solution: A) Calculate the instances that will accommodate peak load. Use this number as your Auto Scaling minimum. B) Create an Auto Scaling group 30% larger than the size needed for peak load. Stop some instances, and configure Auto Scaling to start instances as traffic increases. C) Move static content to CloudFront and Amazon S3. Configure Auto Scaling to add instances to the group as traffic increases. Configure a Launch Configuration with an AMI which contains your web application. D) Move PHP application to CloudFront and Amazon S3. Configure Auto Scaling as the origin of your CloudFront distribution.

  27. 27. Sample Developer – Associate question A recently deployed application is using DynamoDB to store customer registrations. Customers are given a unique randomized hash for the primary key. The application has been working without issue for a month. After unexpected increase of customer registrations we are now seeing a large number of application exceptions and customer complaints. What could a potential cause of the issue?
  28. 28. Sample Developer – Associate question A recently deployed application is using DynamoDB to store customer registrations. Customers are given a unique randomized hash for the primary key. The application has been working without issue for a month. After unexpected increase of customer registrations we are now seeing a large number of application exceptions and customer complaints. What could a potential cause of the issue? A) The VPC subnet of the application instance is missing a route to an internet gateway. B) DynamoDB reads and writes are exceeding the provisioned throughput of the DynamoDB table. C) The randomized key is causing sub optimal usage of the provisioned throughput. D) IAM policy to allow is throttling DynamoDB traffic.

The application has been working without issue for a month. After unexpected increase of customer registrations we are now seeing a large number of application exceptions and customer complaints. What could a potential cause of the issue? A) The VPC subnet of the application instance is missing a route to an internet gateway.
