In my experience, once one has an understanding of the performance

databases, clients, et. al.), one can extrapolate pretty accurately well
out to orders of magnitude.
The problem is that many organizations don't do the above prior to
freezing the design and initiating deployment.
Sadly, I think money and time have a lot to do with this. Technology is
a moving target, and everyone is constantly struggling to keep up while
I've seen this out of software developers, too. I'd say I've seen more
outages due to a simple command typed into a router cli crashing the
router than DDoS traffic. Perhaps I've been lucky with the latter.
