Hi there -

We have a database with 8000+ records and have been creating a hash with them.

It is crashing our automation and exceeding the limit.

What are some tips to not exceed the limit?

It depends on the script - without seeing the details there’s no way to know what approach might be better or what design pattern to avoid. It’s been my experience that processing 8,000 items are relatively easy for Airtable scripts to handle so something complex must be happening for each item.

@kuovonne is an expert when it comes to optimizing Airtable script for performance.

Is the crash occurring because the limit is exceeded? Or is the crash separate from the limit?

Does either the crash or the limit relate to the hash?

Which limit is causing the problem? Automation scripts have several limits.
