[BigQuery] (310) Storage API Error: Error: { code: UNKNOWN, message: Stream removed }

I am getting this error for big projects which have large number of rows - 

Failed to save modifications to the server. Error returned: 'OLE DB or ODBC error: [DataSource.Error] ERROR [HY000] [Microsoft][BigQuery] (310) Storage API Error: Error: { code: UNKNOWN, message: Stream removed }. '.

And I am not using ODBC driver but Google Big Query connector to connect to GCP Big Query. Though I have ODBC Simba driver installed in my VM. What is the issue here?


I noticed one thing this error we are only facing in a shared vm(among 9 members). When I am working on a personal Azure vm then this error is not coming and data is also loading very fast. Both have same ram(32 GB) and cpu(xeon 8272cl vs 8370c) and are in same network zone. What can be issue here?

@v-jianpeng-msft   I had a discussion with Google Team. They know about the issue, they mentioned that on retry this can be solved easily. But it seems like the Google BQ connector doesnt have the retry mechanism. Is this being worked upon?

Hi, @songogeta32 

Thank you very much for your reply. While there is no direct reconnect button, you can try to re-establish the connection or add credentials, you can try it.

In addition, you can try to adjust the timeout period to see if it will be reconnected within the specified time, the documentation for the advanced settings is as follows:

Google BigQuery (Microsoft Entra ID) (Beta) - Power Query | Microsoft Learn


You can also try the two methods of the previous reply.

Google confirmed its an open issue from their side. But the error can be handled from client side also i.e. if Google BigQuery connector implements retries in RPC API calls then this will be solved.

Also we are using Google Big Query connector then why the error is related to ODBC. We have installed odbc driver but we are not using!

No the retry logic should be inside the Google BQ connector, not for user to something to worry about. The API call inside the BQ connector should be retried.
