How do I decrease the response time for the first request after idle time?

Steps for decreasing the response time for the first request after idle time

By default, web apps are unloaded if they are idle for a set time of period. This way, the system can conserve resources. The downside is that the response to the first request after the web app is unloaded is longer, to allow the web app to load and start serving responses.

In Basic and Standard service plans, you can turn on the Always On setting to keep the app always loaded.

 

 This eliminates longer load times after the app is idle. To change the Always On setting steps are:

Step1:- In the Azure portal, go to your web app.

Step2:- Select Application settings.

Step3:- For Always-On, select On.
