DataFlow Failed with no usable explanation

Options

I have a dataflow that i was able to run successfully on a small sample dataset. I attempted to run this same dataflow on a dataset with around 429K rows of data but after 10 hours, the dataflow with an error message of "Failed while executing There was a problem running this DataFlow". I am curious if there is a timeout window with Magic ETL dataflows since it ran succesfully with a small sample size? My dataflow consists of an Input Dataset, Python Script, and an Output Dataset tiles. The python script tile is running a forecast on 37K zip codes with 24 months of historical data on each. Any help would be appreciated.

    @joshnoyes - you may have already tried this, but wanted to share in case you aren't aware.

    If you got to the history tab of a dataflow, you can access a more detailed view of the ETL execution.

    From there, you should be able to access more details about what caused the failure.

    If using a python tile, I highly recommend making use of the console tab to troubleshoot/narrow down the issue.
