Alteryx Certified Partner



I try new Python tool. I discover when I  develop flow involve a lot of data. When  I try code via Jupyter  notebook, It work fine. but when I try in these situation I got an timeout error


1. data input with 26 M records

2. Connect data via entire workflows instead develop on jupyter only


I got this error  ERROR | timeout waiting for execute to reply (30s)


however When I do sub sampling data ( around 20 % of data), The workflow work normally
