I receive a MaxRecordCount warning on some of our feature layers. What does this mean and how do I fix it?

For some of the feature layers that we have on our open data site, under data report, there is a warning that says: Warning: The maxRecordCount for this layer is greater than 5000. This can cause browsers to crash. We recommend lowering this number.

What does this mean and how do I fix it?

I found information here:

Server configuration details—ArcGIS Open Data | ArcGIS

but the data has less than 1,000 records, so I am not sure why I am getting that warning message.

Hi Chaya, glad you were able to find the info you needed. The alert you are seeing does not reference the number of features at all, it is just about the max record count. If you were to add 9,000 features to the layer, it would cause a performance problem, so we alert you as soon as we see it.

Make sense?
