Queries made against large databases can return many more records than you need for a particular operation. In OrientDB as with other databases, there are limiters available to determine how much data gets returned to you.
There are three limiters available to you, mostly used with
Between()This method takes two arguments, which are integers. It limits the return records to those that occur between them.
Skip()This method takes one argument, which is an integer. It acts as offset, only returning the records that occur after this point.
Limit()This method takes one argument, which is an integer. It defines the maximum number of records to return.
List<ODocument> blogEntries = database.Select() .From('Blog') .Limit(50) .ToList();
Here, you query the database for a list of the first fifty blog entries.
