Example of explain output for a relationship lookup with a limit

This query looks for relationships between two anonymous nodes with type route, and returns at most 10. Again, the explain mode is details and the output format is the default ASCII format. Here is the explain output:

Here, DFEPipelineScan scans for edges that start from anonymous node ?anon_node7 and end at another anonymous node ?anon_node21, with a relationship type saved as ?p_type1. There is a filter for ?p_type1 being el://route (where el stands for edge label), which corresponds to [p:route] in the query string.

DFEDrain collects the output solution with a limit of 10, as shown in its Arguments column. DFEDrain terminates once the limit is reached or the all solutions are produced, whichever happens first.
