Execution Options

Execution options are provided when a schema is made executable. The options range from allowing a maximum execution timeout to providing a maximum execution complexity.

We have built in some options that limit the execution engine in order to protect the overall performance of your GraphQL Server.


Member Type Default Description
EnableTracing bool false Enables tracing for performance measurement of query requests. *
ExecutionTimeout TimeSpan TimeSpan.FromSeconds(30) The maximum allowed execution time of a query.
IncludeExceptionDetails bool Debugger.IsAttached Includes exception details into the GraphQL errors. **
MaxExecutionDepth int? null The maximum allowed query depth of a query.
QueryCacheSize int 100 The amount of queries that can be cached for faster execution.
MaxOperationComplexity int? null The allowed complexity of queries.
UseComplexityMultipliers bool? null Specifies if multiplier arguments are used to calculate the query complexity.
ForceSerialExecution bool? null Used for EntityFramework to have request be done in one thread.

* Performance tracing is based on Apollo Tracing. The specification can be found here.

** The exception details that are included into GraphQL errors can also be modified by implementing an IErrorFilter. See more about that here.
