We’re running a function on our careers page for getting updates to jobs. This function fetches from an API, and stores the data in a cache which expires every 15 minutes and then would fetch the latest data again on the next page view.
We’re trying to get an understanding of how this would impact our functions usage. The site gets a decent amount of traffic and the careers page gets around 100 page views per day.
One question we have is does a request to read the cache count as a function request and would it use one of our 125,000 monthly function requests? Same with the hours we have? Or does the cache just come straight from the server and wouldn’t use the Netlify functions at all until the cache expired?
In general, we’re just trying to figure out if this is going to cost us extra per month or not
