If your organization is planning an online event in which you expect high traffic, or you suddenly find your site to be undergoing a high traffic event, you can file a Support Ticket to request temporary additional cloud capacity for your Magento Commerce Cloud store.
Affected products and versions
- Magento Commerce Cloud 2.2.x., 2.3.x
How to identify high traffic events
In New Relic Alerts, you can use baseline alert conditions to define thresholds that adjust to the behavior of your data.
Baseline alerting is useful for creating alert conditions that:
- Only notify you when data is behaving abnormally.
- Dynamically adjust to changing data and trends, including daily or weekly trends.
In addition, baseline alerting works well with new applications when you do not yet have known behaviors.

If you receive an alert notification that suggests a high traffic event you may need to consider submitting a Support Ticket requesting additional capacity. Follow the below steps.
How to monitor performance of your site
Adobe provides a set of New Relic alert policies for Magento Commerce Cloud Pro and Starter Production environments to track the following key performance metrics:
- Apdex score
- Error rate
- Disk space (available on Pro Production environments only)
Based on industry best practices, these policies set thresholds for warning and critical conditions that affect performance. When your site experiences an infrastructure or application issue that triggers an alert threshold, New Relic sends alert notifications so that you can proactively address the issue. To use these policies, you must configure notification channels to receive the alert messages.
