Mysteriously High Read Ops

Hi, I’m new to Fauna (and a bit of a DB noob). So far literally all I’ve done is go through two tutorials and yet the test databases I set up during that process already show a read ops count of 555. The number went up since yesterday and all I did was look at the dashboard. Can someone shed some light on this for me? Thank you.

Using the dashboard still incurs read ops. Viewing the Collections page, the collection is Paginated (8 TROs min for the index read) and each doc is also retrieved (+1 TRO min for each doc). Refresh the page or leave and come back enough times and you’ll rack up the Read Ops soon enough.

We’ve released a fix that we hope improves this. Seems like the dashboard was re-querying on window blur (e.g., when you switch back and forth between browser tabs).

Please keep an eye on it and let us know if the read ops still seem too high. Thank you!

oh no! Will indeed keep an eye out.

@HyperLathe and others, sorry for trivializing.
