Lambda Node.JS read huge data from MySQL database

Last Modified: 2020-08-27
Hi Experts,

 How do in AWS Lambda (Node.JS) read huge data from MYSQL ( AWS RDS) database view?
Currently, I'm using the following code but it fails on:

  "errorType": "Function.ResponseSizeTooLarge",
  "errorMessage": "Response payload size (8459500 bytes) exceeded maximum allowed payload size (6291556 bytes)."

Code Snapshot:
var mysql = require('mysql');
var config = require('./config.json');
const util = require('util');
var connection = mysql.createConnection({
   host: config.dbhost,
   user: config.dbuser,
   password: config.dbpassword,
   database: config.dbname,
   port: config.port

exports.handler = (event, context, callback) => {
        connection.query('SELECT * FROM FC_MAIN_DATA_MODEL', function (error, results, fields) {
        if (error) {
            throw error;
        } else {
            connection.end(function (err) { callback(err, results);});
