Impose limit of interactions in Historical Search

When only a subset of a few thousand tweets is necessary, current DataSift features do not permit setting a interaction count limit.

Adding this limit would allow clients to:
1) extract subsets (other than 10%);
2) to securely limit the number of interactions to what they are happy to pay for (in this specific search).

I can provide specific use cases if required.

Cheers,

Hi,
You can currently extract subsets other than 10% by using the interaction.sample target in your CSDL.

Putting a hard limit on how many interactions you receive from a given task is a use case we are aware of. We are investigating the possibility of implementing support for this in the future.

Hi Paul,

Combining the 10% sample and data from a historical preview is how I have been doing it, which is fine for manual work but not easily doable programatically. I understand that in a distributed system it is hard to impose these limits, nevertheless this would be very handy.

Cheers,
