throttled-reads-upper-threshold is documented as being a percentage; actually a count #169

Documentation for throttled-reads-upper-threshold:

throttled-reads-upper-threshold int How many percent of the table capacity should be throttled before Dynamic DynamoDB scales up the read provisioning?

But, in the code, it's actually only looking at the throttled read event COUNT, not percentage, in the last 5 minutes (not even in the last check-interval) :( Either the code or the docs are wrong. Thanks!

Thanks for highlighting this. The docs are wrong, I will update them.

No problem, thanks for fixing. Also,since my check-interval is 1 minute, will it continue to raise the provisioning every minute during the 5 minute period where my throttle count remains over the threshold? I'd only want one increase during this 5 minute period unless the throttle count keeps raising significantly.

Add a note that it is counted per 5 min interval.
