Flow to CosmosDB - slow throughput slow

We are using Microsoft Flow to push documents to Cosmos DB. It is working fine.


The issue is the time it is taking to Create/Insert to CosmosDB.  50K docs taking on an average 15mins.  


We have setup throughput at 10K RU/sec.

The size of documnet is pretty small. 


Are there any settings or design factors we need to take into account?

Re: Flow to CosmosDB - slow throughput slow

Hi @ak16519,


How is your flow created?


Have you tried to upload your local files to your Custom Database? As far as I know, uploading files from local will be faster than from the cloud.


How about the condition of your Network? It will also affect the speed.


If you are using the Gateway, please check the Network connection between Gateway and data source.



Best regards,
