Sorry for my English.
Let's say there is a chat server in AWS and it has bandwidth limit like 5Gbps. Someday, massive user comes and it spikes a lot of traffic in a second and finally it overs 5Gbps in 15 seconds.
I'm curious what is gonna happen? does OS drop the inbound traffic? or traffics are not handled(pass to process) but stored some kind of queue internally in OS?
I'm asking this because I don't understand why there is no limitation of bandwidth or traffic in AWS ELB.
