Keeping a database open

I’m using the Airtable API to read data from a table. I find that when I make the API call after a period of inactivity, the first call takes more than 1 second. A subsequent call a few seconds later performs much quicker than the first (approx 300ms).
Is there any way that I can speed up this first call as performance is important for what I am doing.

Hi @Ian_Wilson, and welcome to the community!

Hmmm, I’m thinking this latency is not Airtable and likely something else that would be difficult to comment on without seeing more details.

If 700ms is untenable as the longest API call, you are probably using the wrong platform. Describe the scenario and explain why you are using REST in a solution where milliseconds matter.
