A service manages a plurality of virtual machine instances for low latency execution of user codes. The service can provide the capability to execute user code in response to events triggered on an auxillary service to provide implicit and automatic rate matching and scaling between events being triggered on the auxiliary service and the corresponding execution of user code on various virtual machine instances. An auxiliary service may be configured as an event triggering service to detect events and generate event messages for execution of the user codes. The service can request, receive, or poll for event messages directly from the auxiliary service or via an intermediary message service. Event messages can be rapidly converted to requests to execute user code on the service. The time from processing the event message to initiating a request to begin code execution is less than a predetermined duration, for example, 100 ms.
