A Propeller defines the compute power assigned to a Propel Application. The larger its compute power, the faster the queries. With Propellers, you can assign different compute powers (and cost profiles) to different use cases or workloads (with the same data).

Propellers have the following properties:

Max RPS: The maximum number of records per second (RPS) that can be processed by the Propeller on a single query.


  • P1_X_SMALL

    Max records per second: 5,000,000 records per second

  • P1_SMALL

    Max records per second: 25,000,000 records per second


    Max records per second: 100,000,000 records per second

  • P1_LARGE

    Max records per second: 250,000,000 records per second

  • P1_X_LARGE

    Max records per second: 500,000,000 records per second
