  • Verify that the DNS TTL of the site ATG is replacing is < 5 min, at least at launch

  • Be sure that throttling (end-user traffic) can technically be performed and has been tested in a non-production environment. Also make sure that the approvals process and criteria for throttling is well known by all personnel ahead of time. Take a look at Akamai's Shopper Prioritization Application (SPA)
  • Be sure that if there is a firewall between the database and the application servers, and if the database is inspecting SQL*NET traffic, that the firewall can keep up with it. During periods of heavy site traffic, the firewall CPU can be maxed out due to all of the SQL*NET traffic it has to inspect
