Has anyone experienced that when using the reload datasource method to refresh a dashboard, that it takes three times as much it takes to load the data source.

Am using SAP Business Objects Design Studio 16.4.2. with universe datasource

    Hi Robert - what is your BI4.X SP version?

    Perhaps consider updating to sp5 for Design Studio 1.6? See

    I also recommend looking at profiling

    Hi Robert -

    I would check the following:-

    • Merge Prompt (this should be False)

    If True that means you are firing-up more queries.

    • Any additional script right after 'DS_1.reloaddata(); ?

    this will result into script conflict, eventually longer load time

    Highly recommend 'PROFILING=X' mentioned by Tammy second link.

    • Hi Robert - I understand your concern how come same script is faster on load than that of re-calling within the application.

      I'm pretty sure all 4 DS have load in script as "False" ? If that's true let me explain what is happening here.

      Reason for faster DS-turn-back

      All 4 data-source with "FALSE" are already loaded before we land into Application, once the user launch the application from BI-Platform. Only Prompts parameter (if you have prompts) are getting passed to the loaded DS If no Prompt than still DS are already loaded pre-cached.

      Where as invoking the script 'reload' needs to refreshed or reloaded, that contributes increased time.

      However having said that, i believe if we run the 4-DS separately, we can narrow down on DS taking more time to load hence affecting others.

      You can also check on Browser. Run on Chrome too and see if there is a difference. Check below on IE 10 or higher.

      I would encourage to use "PROFILING=X", this will pin-point the cause behind Performance.
