Cloudflare worker warming behavior

Cloudflare workers allow you to run serverless functions, a lot like AWS Lambda.

AWS Lambda has warming behavior that users need to be aware of. Provisioning the container that runs your code has a serious performance impact. Users can do some tricks to get the lambda functions “warmed up” prior to flipping the switch.

Do cloudflare workers behave the same way? How do workers autoscale behind the scenes? Are there any best practices related to warming your workers before “flipping the switch” and allowing site traffic through?

Virtually no spin-up time for the $5/mo plan. The free plan workers might need to be pulled from a central server if they’re low-traffic, but still generally <200ms for the first request to a datacenter.
