Improve Performance of the Flow

Hey guys, I wanted to know some common steps by which I can improve performance while creating flows.


Some, more things I want to talk about. Like currently I have flow in which I have some mock apis. Currently the flow takes 8-12 seconds for a single file.

After this, I added some more actions to log information of some flows in the database. Now the flow run is of 16-18 seconds. I also have to add error/exception handing, so this might take more time. So, what are some ways I can improve on?


I might have more than 5000 files in a single day to pass in the flow. So, what would be the best approach. Add 10 files at a time. So that flow runs 10 times. Or in the same flow only, add 100 files so that inside 1 flow only all the 100 files processing is done?


Is there any limit like only limited number of flow runs can happen in 1 hour??

Oh Okay. Currently I am using a trial license, E3 or E5 something. But that is just for Prototype(POC), during development will be using a purchased license.
