  • When running Preview of query in SAP Signavio Process Intelligence, the error message "Query exhausted resources at this scale factor" appears

  • Or when running ETL, the error message "Query exhausted resources at this scale factor" appears. 


  • SAP Signavio Process Intelligence

Reproducing the Issue

  • In SAP Signavio Process Intelligence -> Manage Data -> Integrations -> Open the relevant Integrations -> Extract/Or Select the relevant tables and Preview 


  • The query defined hits the AWS Athena limits. 


  • If the user is using a standard template (without any modification), then the template needs to be revisited and see if the joined tables can be rearranged in a different way by the Signavio Engineering team.

  • If the user has modified the template, it is needed to check if all the joins are correct and potentially rearrange the joins as recommended in the following chapters in the AWS Blog:

    6. Optimize ORDER BY
    7. Optimize joins
    8. Optimize GROUP BY
