Used in: gor only


The WAIT command instructs the GOR query to wait the specified number of milliseconds before proceeding to the next row. The command is used primarily for debugging purposes and often in conjunction with the GORROW command in deployment testing.


gor ... | WAIT <time_in_milliseconds>


GORROW chr1,1,1 | WAIT 61000

The below example waits for 100ms for 100 rows resulting in a 10 second wait in total.

gor #dbsnp# | top 100 | wait 100
