3212249 - Error in OData Query: Server Unable to Handle Data Services Request

For performance reasons, only 3 OData or ODP / BW requests in Analytics can be running at the same time. This error occurs when a 4th request is triggered.

Additionally, the same data source cannot be extracted more than once at the same time, so only 1 request is requested to 1 data source at a time.


Please ensure that no more than 3 OData queries or BW extractions are run at the same time. Note that depending on the size of the result, it may take some time until it is finished. This is especially relevant where requests are run automatically.

Also please ensure that only 1 extraction per data source runs at any given point in time.
