Azure function crashed during cold start after converting to isolated worker

I have an Azure function that had been working fine for the past 2 years. I recently converted to isolated worker and now every time the function is spawned up, it will crash initially during cold start. So if the API has not been called for a while (more than 5'), the first call to the API again will always fail. Then after about 10s, it works fine. Before migrating to the isolated worker, it never had this problem, also cold start was about 1-2s only. I'm using the consumption plan. Diagnostics shows the below error, which is not very helpful. I really want to convert the azure function back to be in-process, but that is being deprecated by Microsoft.

This is really frustrating. The isolated worker seems a huge step back to me.

    Hi @TD,

    It's great to hear that your issue has been resolved, and your willingness to share the solution is appreciated, as it will benefit others facing similar challenges.

    As per the Microsoft Q&A community guidelines, the original author of a question cannot accept their own answer but can accept answers provided by others. Therefore, I will repost your solution for you to accept if you wish. The problem arose after transitioning a two-year-old function app to an isolated worker function, which led to crashes on cold starts due to a socket exception. This was confirmed by replicating the issue in a newly created function app.

    Your issue became resolved when you updated the following nuget packages:

    <PackageReference Include="Microsoft.Azure.Functions.Worker" Version="1.20.1" /> --> 1.22.0 <PackageReference Include="Microsoft.Azure.Functions.Worker.ApplicationInsights" Version="1.1.0" /> --> 1.2.0 
    <PackageReference Include="Microsoft.Azure.Functions.Worker.Extensions.Http.AspNetCore" Version="1.2.0" /> --> 1.3.0 
    <PackageReference Include="Microsoft.Azure.Functions.Worker.Sdk" Version="1.16.4" /> --> 1.17.2
    

    I didn't see any issues under https://github.com/Azure/azure-functions-host calling out your specific issue so it's difficult to know for certain what the underlying root cause was.
