Operations Monitor: 'Task Path: Chains' What are these, and what is depth?

Hello Everyone,

In Operations Monitor it has a task planning sheet that shows the 'Task Path: Chains' and has a measure called 'depth'. Qlik has the following description for this in their documentation:

"Task Chain: Paths

The Task Chain: Paths table shows the full task path for a reload together with the task depth. When you select a task path, the Task Chain: Median Reload Duration (Last 28 Days) displays the reload duration for all the tasks in the task chain."

-https://help.qlik.com/en-US/sense/3.2/Subsystems/Monitoring/Content/OperationsMonitor/Task-planning....

The story for Operations monitor basically states that this can be used to simplify high depth task chains, but we don't understand what a high depth task chain is, or how to prevent it in the first place.

We were hoping the Qlik Community could help us out by giving a quick explanation, and perhaps point us in the direction of some documentation?

Thank you all very much!
