I am trying to add Athena datasource to quicksight that has around 120 Million records. I plan to do the initial loading and setup incremental refresh after that. The data in Athena is imported (by GlueCrawler) from S3. We do not do have calculated fields (yet). Currently, the SPICE import fails with the following error:
## Refresh error details Ingestion Id 6f106798-2a81-415e-a294-0a7d6c5213f3 Error type: SQL_EXCEPTION [Learn more](https://docs.aws.amazon.com/console/quicksight/errors) This is a general SQL error. This can be caused by query timeouts, resource constraints, unexpected DDL alterations before or during a query, and other database errors. Check your database settings and your query, and try again. Error details: Query timeout [Execution ID: 7799bb9a-7ab7-496d-b430-78af86abf451]
- Is this because of Athena timeout of 30 minutes ? If I work with AWS to increase the soft limit, will it fix the issue.
- Am I on the right track ? Once the initial load to SPICE is complete, will the refresh work as expected going forward ?
- Should make any changes to the data model in Athena (partition, indexing etc) to make this faster ?
