Export duration

When triggering an export via https://dgraph.io/docs/deploy/dgraph-administration/#exporting-database, is the export always completed when the graphql response is received ? With my local database I’m currently getting a successful response very quickly, and I’m wondering if that would be the case for larger databases, or if at some point the export becomes a background job

In case of larger databases, the graphql response will take time (a few minutes) to return. Currently, the export job does not become a background job. The feature to make long running tasks run in background has been asked before. There is an RFC for the same over here.


Perfect answer thanks
