Hi Devin, funny you should ask! I published another experiment the other day on exactly that : https://read.acloud.guru/how-long-does-aws-lambda-keep-your-idle-functions-around-before-a-cold-start-bf715d3b810

Don’t read too much into those numbers though as they can change without notice, they might have changed already since the Lambda outage 2 weeks ago.

Like what you read? Give Yan Cui a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
