Timeboxed Cypher statements
There’s a way to terminate a cypher statement if it takes longer than a given threshold. Consider an expensive statement calculating cross product of shortestpaths for each pair of nodes:
CALL apoc.cypher.runTimeboxed( "match (n),(m) match p=shortestPath((n)-[*]-(m)) return p", null, 10000 ) YIELD value RETURN value.p
This will return all results computed within 10000 milliseconds. The statement will be terminated after that period.
