Feature Idea: Unable to query all my events



I am using NRQL to query my events within a time range. My query looks like select (a, b, c) from table where (c in (‘1’, ‘2’)) since time1 until time2 limit 1000. When I change the query to (c in (‘1’)) I get 500 events, and when I do (c in (‘2’)) I get 900 events. When I combine both (c in (‘1’, ‘2’)) I get 1000 events, which is correct since the total number of records 1400 is greater than the limit. When I use the time-stamp of the most recent event (events are returned ordered by time-stamp descending) as my starting time (since parameter), I expect to get the remaining 400 events. However, I am getting only a few more events. With this limitation, I am unable to get all my events.
A workaround is to make two separate queries c=‘1’ and c=‘2’. It just happens to be less efficient for my use case.

Feature Idea: Remove 1000 limitation for Insight NRQL results

Hi @alex.tulikumwenayo - If you have access, you could use the Insights API to pull the data out. The API’s allow you to page through the data to retrieve it all.


@stefan_garnham - can you point me to the documentation of Insights API pagination feature? All the docs I have gone through do not mention pagination.


Ah, you are correct as there is no pagination. I was mistaken in my understanding.


I’d like to request this feature in Insights API. Like New Relic API returns a ‘Link’ header to allow users to query the next set of results, Insights API could do the same.


I have added a poll above, @alex.tulikumwenayo so we can start collecting votes around this. Thanks for letting us know how this feature will help you and your team. :blush:
