Impact of increasing the "Maximum Character Stream Size (MB)" value on the Webi Processing server?

Hello Community Members,

Of late we are seeing this issue when viewing and scheduling a few WEBI Reports.

The error we are receiving is: “Maximum character output size limit reached. Contact your BusinessObjects administrator. (Error: ERR_WIS_30272)”

A little bit of investigation over SAP xsearch and Google revealed that the resolution is to increase the value in the WebiProcessingServer properties.

I also read that increasing this value would result in performance issues.

I would appreciate if someone can help me understand why this issue occurs and what is the impact on increasing this value?

I would like to know why would there be a performance issue when this value is raised?

    no, i've never know a perf issue for increasing this.

    i quite regularly do the following:

    • Increase the default "Maximum Character Stream Size" for the
      WebIntelligenceProcessingServer from "5" to 10Mb.
    • Increase the default "Maximum Binary Stream" for the
      WebIntelligenceProcessingServer from "50" to 150Mb.

    there are loads of SAP Notes out there is your search at with the keywords in the error text above.
