Adjust Maximum Time for Query Operations

The MAX TIME MS query bar option sets the cumulative time limit in milliseconds to process query bar operations. If the time limit is reached before the operation completes, Compass interrupts the operation.

MaxTimeMS Option

The default MAX TIME MS value is 60000, or 60 seconds. Consider raising this value if you have a very large collection, or your operations are frequently timing out. You can also consider creating indexes to improve query performance.

  1. Click Options.

  2. Adjust MAX TIME MS to the desired value in milliseconds.

To learn more about MAX TIME MS, see cursor.maxTimeMS() in the MongoDB manual.
