Compute units consumption

Keep in mind that it is much more efficient to run one longer scrape (at least one minute) than more shorter ones because of the startup time.

The average consumption is 0.2 Compute unit for 1000 actor pages scraped

You can return fields to achive 3 different things:

  • Add a new field - Return object with a field that is not in the result output
  • Change a field - Return an existing field with a new value
  • Remove a field - Return an existing field with a value undefined
