"Still processing" response in Athena

Why does Athena sometimes display the response “I am still processing your request and it’s taking time to understand. Can you retry again after few minutes.” when certain queries are being processed?


Hello, @manojkumar.rajendran. Suppose you have a query that is taking some time to process. It’s important to avoid repeatedly asking the same query as it can overburden the system and delay the response time. To minimize the system load, the query will be saved as “Processing” until it is fully processed. During this time, Athena will display a message saying “Processing your request.”
