8.8 million GB Seconds for 42 Azure Functions requests?

Peter Gosling 101 Reputation points

I am evaluating Azure Functions at home, with a view to adopting them at work. I setup a small demo project. This morning, I made 42 requests to my Azure Functions endpoints, within about 35 minutes. The Azure portal is now showing I used 8.8 million function execution units (in GB seconds) which will cost me over £100.

The endpoints just read and write single records from a managed SQL Server instance. Based on previous use, I do not think it is SQL Server causing the problem.

Is there any way to see what used those 8.8m GB seconds?

    The problem was the Azure Portal does not show the units in the chart of function executions. Function execution units are measured in Megabyte milliseconds, but the chart does not say this.

    The Azure documentation gives the costs of function execution units in Gigabyte seconds.

    The real solution to this problem is for the charts in the Azure portal to show the units.
