Hi Dhanya,

We are using the parallel download approach. What seems to happen is that 
for one account (which is one of the biggest accounts), the script hangs 
and keeps running. I does not fail or error out. We have applied possible 
predicates but given that we have lots of data, what is a solution here? I 
have tried playing around with the page size as well. Is there a 
recommended page size?
