You can now set the maximum number of concurrent executions for any Stedi function to avoid overloading downstream services and ensure that the function can scale up as needed.
Concurrency refers to the number of in-flight requests your function is handling at the same time. With the new concurrency controls, you can set the maximum number of executions that a given function can execute simultaneously. Generally, you would set this to a number that your downstream system can comfortably support.
In addition to limiting the number of concurrent requests, concurrency controls help ensure that you always have available capacity for a given function within your Stedi account. All functions within a Stedi account share an overall concurrency limit that can be raised upon request. When you set a concurrency limit for a specific function, you reserve a part of the overall account "budget" for that function. This approach ensures that you can scale up to the reserved level, even if other functions are experiencing a high load. Visit the functions documentation
for more details.
