> Hi All, I have a 3 node cluster hosting a Riak TS database. During a query

> Data:
> 1 minute interval with 30 columns per minute. Indexed on time (quantum of
> 1d) and two other columns.
> Query:
>       avg(<some column>) where time > t1 and time < t2 and key1=<some val>
> and key2 =<someval>
> Strangely enough, the query works when t2-t1 <= 5 days; however, for any
> duration longer than that I get a 1022 error (projected result of query is
> too big). I am using RiakTS v1.5 and it seems in this version this setting

> actual?) ); so, is the result purely a coincidence?
> It is hard to determine whether this is a coincidence without having the
actual dataset. The bug is fixed in
Riak TS 1.5.1, download here:

> w.r.t 1022 error: Docs say that max_returned_data_size is the parameter I

> Aggregate functions like AVG use the max_returned_data_size setting like a
non-aggregate query, though
the result is one row. Setting it high enough to hold the query results
should allow the query to complete.

> Finally, I have 1m interval data for a year and in a production setting I
