1 Answer 1


40 million rows is a relatively small data set for big objects, so should execute relatively quickly.

A presentation by Salesforce had a dataset with 1 Billion order line items, it was suggested that an aggregate query on that dataset would take around 10 minutes.

So I expect your query would run more quickly than that.
