So currently I have a future method that queries all the fields of an object and queries a large chunk of data, then does some nested for loops to map out field usage.

The problem is once it is used on objects with large amount of fields (700+), it hits CPU Exceeded limit time out of 10min. Not really too much wiggle room on code optimization.

From testing about 100 fields works fine, so i'm wondering if there is a way to queue this up to help avoid this issue?

I tried something like,

public void execute(    list<String> totalFields )

    List<List<String>> splitFields; // totalFields split up by 100 size.

    for(List<String> f: splitFields)

So it creates like 7 future jobs, but 4 of them times out, 3 succeeds. I'm curious if there is anything I can do programatically to get all the jobs to succeed, put some delays or timers or something to allow this to work?

You can do the same using Queueable apex, which will help in queuing multiple jobs one after the other asynchronously.
