Can requests be lost?

Are there any possible issues with Render dropping requests?
For example, if the containers are auto-scaling, is it possible a request gets dropped during this process (say because you currently have 1 container and all of a sudden get 100,000+ requests in seconds)?
Or what happens to a request if your container crashes for some reason, is it lost forever?

The tl;dr is I’m trying to figure out if I need to set up request monitoring in front of a render server or if I can just assume Render handles/queues it all.

Requests may not make it through to the target server as a result of it being unavailable, crashing etc - they would be returned a 502 error along with a CloudFlare rayID and a header x-render-routing which gives us some insight of why the request failed.
