sampling modifier

The sampling modifier limits the number of items processed by the AQL sentence to a specific number. If selection criteria are included within the sentence, processing continues until the specified number of items are found that match the selection criteria.


sampling sample.number


select entity sampling 10
[4042] 10 items selected out of 10 sampling items.

In this example, 1513 items had to be sampled to return the 10 items requested.

select entity with name "[mary]" sampling 10
[4042] 10 items selected out of 1513 sampling items.
