Recently I'm seeing this error in project also after using the Take Method. I have used the below code : var result = query.Take(MaxTakeValue).OrderByDescending(x => x.CreatedDate).Track().GetResult(); Please let me know what I'm doing wrong. Thanks .

How big is the largest document you have indexed? Both the Index overview and your query (using MaxTakeValue) need to be able to store the entire resultset in memory. If you have large documents and fetch them all at once this might give you problems. As for the Index overview you simply need more memory but for your query there are two things you can do:

1. Don't fetch all documents at once by using MaxTakeValue instead page them when needed using Skip + Take.
2. Limit the fields you fetch when querying by using Select() and only fetch the properties that you need and not the entire document.

Thanks for your reply Henrik.I have some of the documents around 20MB in size.And My Actual requirement is to show 4 items only but I have to show the no. of results found for Search queries . So, I'm using this : 1)var result = query.OrderByDescending(x => x.CreatedDate).Track().Take(Count).GetResult(); 2)var resultCnt = query.Take(MaxTakeValue).GetResult().Count();.In 1) Count is 4 , I'm not getting any problem when I specified the Take(Count=4), But , In 2)I'm trying to specify the max possible value, In My case : MaxTakeValue is 50. Since I want to know How many results found for the search query.In case 1) I'm showing the result.Count() in a lable1 and in Case 2) I have to show the resultCnt.Count() in lable 2 where I'm getting exception. Please tell me is there any way that we can get the count of results in case 2.

You don't have to fetch all results to know the total number of hits, just use 'result.TotalMatching' as it will return the total number of matching documents.

Thanks Henrik result.TotalMatching Helped me.
