copy/paste from slack:
is it normal for faunaDB’s latency to be sporadically over 5 seconds?
I have been casually monitoring the round-trip-time to make a request to FaunaDB via the GraphQL endpoint, and ive been noticing response times of 5-12 seconds, but only sporadically throughout the day.
My serverless functions have a timeout of 10 seconds, and as a result i am noticing timout errors on my serverless api endpoints daily (only really starting being a daily nuisance this week)
The exact same request will usually have a round-trip-time of 300ms, so i am pretty sure its not an issue of requesting too much data.
(I am using netlify Functions, a wrapper of AWS Lambda).
is this a normal issue with FaunaDB? should i take the time to implement a client-side re-try when i get a serverless timeout? should i increase the timeout past 10 seconds? or is there something that i might be missing about how to properly query fauna? how is everyone else handling this? (edited)
