Size of Returned Data Package
If neither I_SAVE_IN_FILE nor I_SAVE_IN_TABLE are set, the return takes the form of packages (an internal table) of the size I_PACKAGESIZE.
The following dependencies result from the package size:
- If the package size is negative, the return takes place in one package
- If the package size is 0, the query is executed in parallel if possible, and the result is returned in packages of the default package size
- If the package size is positive, InfoProvider processing is sequential
The package size always specifies the maximum size of a package. With MultiProviders in particular, a package might be smaller than specified although further data follows. This is the case if the last package of a PartProvider has been read, and further packages follow.
