Lab description

Azure function app scaling is a feature that allows you to automatically scale your function app based on the number of events. This feature is useful when you have a function app that is triggered by a large number of events. For example, if you have a function app that is triggered by a large number of events, you can use this feature to automatically scale your function app based on the number of events.

This lab challenge assumes familiarity with the following concepts:

  • Understanding of Azure Functions
  • Working with Azure Load Testing service
  • Simulating traffic to Azure Functions Apps
