Exploring Lambda Function Performance and UUID Usage in Xano
The State Changers discussed the performance implications of Lambda functions, especially regarding their cold start and handling large amounts of data. A proposed solution was to put the Lambda function inside a custom function to minimize data transfer and enhance performance. The concept of keeping Lambda "warm" using a background task was mentioned as another way to reduce the number of cold starts in the APIs. They also mentioned using a similar warming technique with AWS Lambdas.
The discussion also included queries about using UUIDs instead of an ascending integer as a record ID inside Xano. It was explained that the primary key of a Xano table is always an auto-incrementing integer called ID and this configuration cannot be changed, although a UUID field can be created and uniquely indexed for high performance.
This meeting might be useful for those interested in Lambda functions, performance optimization, and using UUIDs in the Xano database.
