Adobe attempts to partner with clients to ensure that a high-traffic event is successful. Scheduling traffic spikes is the starting point in that partnering process. The Schedule Spike section lets you alert Adobe of temporary traffic spikes so that appropriate resources can be allocated to handle them.
Advanced server-side data balancing with several dedicated personnel are used to make sure that all customers have the most up-to-date reports possible. As your organization notifies Adobe of spikes in traffic, Adobe can make sure that the sudden increase in traffic is a positive experience. Failure to notify Adobe of increases in traffic can increase latency during critical reporting periods.
Please read the information about Required Lead Time for Traffic Increases before you schedule a traffic spike.

In the Spike Start Date field, specify the date when you expect the traffic spike to start.
In the Spike End Date field, specify the date when you expect the traffic spike to end.
In the Expected Daily Page Views During Spike field, specify the total expected daily page views during the traffic spike period, then click Submit.
Make sure to specify the total expected page views, not just the additional page views.
To schedule a traffic spike, include a phone number in your user contact information so that Adobe can contact you with questions, if needed.
