FeedOptions.MaxBufferedItemCount Property


Gets or sets the maximum number of items that can be buffered client side during parallel query execution in the Azure Cosmos DB service. A positive property value limits the number of buffered items to the set value. If it is set to less than 0, the system automatically decides the number of items to buffer.

public int MaxBufferedItemCount { get; set; }
member this.MaxBufferedItemCount : int with get, set
