The type() function performs poorly

I use the data here, This data is in CSV format, and it has 41.7 million nodes and 1.47 billion relationships.
I’m sharing the converted RDF file now, and my schema:

id: int @index(int) .
followers: [uid] @reverse  .

type twitter_user {
    id: int
    followers: [twitter_user]

I did three tests

The results show that the performance of the type function is poor.
And there’s another problem, when I run a query on the k8s cluster, the start_ts returned is always the same.

The second query should definitely be fast here.

  x(func: eq(id, 12)) @filter(type(twitter_user)) {

I suppose we are fetching all the uids associated with the type before doing the intersection. We could be smarter here. Accepting this as an enhancement.

Can you share a way to replicate this? You should get different start_ts unless you are reusing the same transaction every time.

@pawan Thank you for your reply.
I don’t know how to replicate this problem right now, it won’t happen with a single alpha, but three of my four clusters have this problem.

The first() and type() functions also seem to perform poorly when used together.

The has() function looks ok.

Hi pawan, I have the same problem; if there are too many nodes related to the type, it will be very time-consuming to get all the UIDs associated with the type before the intersection; and the performance of the filtering query for the prediction of equal index is much better than that of the type filtering. This will cause a problem. If you do not use the type filter, it will be faster. You can’t see that this is an enhancement.
