Infrastructure capacity management requests

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

These requests are typically made when you anticipate an increase in the API traffic volume for a certain period of time due to events such as an upcoming holiday shopping season or planned sales promotions.
