Wanting to run a simple script using Pandas DataFrame I had a 413 error stumbling upon the 48MB restriction of the serverless function. See also a similar question here Payload too large The popular packages Pandas, Numpy are around 70 MB themselves.
I’ve been looking to reduce the size of the packages as suggested on this article How to shrink NumPy, Pandas… However setting the CFLAG to compile the package led to long deployment times.
Not being familiar with optimizing pip installs, is there a way to install/compile Pandas to get it to work within the 48 MB? Or increase the limit to 200 MB?

We don’t recommend approaches like changing how the non-Python code in packages is compiled to try to reduce the package size, because this is difficult for us to support.
We did hear from many Functions customers that having packages like
pandasincluded in the Python runtime would be helpful because it would let them deploy functions without exceeding the 48 MB limit. With our recently-released Python 3.11 runtime, we have included these packages as well as a few others.
Any updates on this? Being unable to install pandas numpy scipy is quite frustrating
Hello, I have exactly the same issue, deploying pandas+numpy function. I also tried reducing the size with the CFLAG above, but the remote build timed out. Is there any solution?
