From Amazon “Simple Email Service”:
I can send one email? One during the lifetime of the universe? One per day? One per second?
The number has no meaning without a unit.
Only after you open the “more information” link, they tell you that the 200 is per day and the 1 is per second.
They’re using different units for numbers right next to each other, without specifying the unit. 🤡
This is how it should be done (from AWS Lambda):
This “no unit” problem in AWS is really prevalent. Here’s throttling limits in API Gateway:
(And no, when you go to edit the limits, the units won’t be revealed there either.)
For a company with 1.6 trillion valuation, one would think they’d have the resources to hire at least one person who cares, or a UX designer who would spot this problem immediately. 🤷
