FM SAPGUI_PROGRESS_INDICATOR is affecting the performance?

Hi all,
I have a report that select a lot of data from database.

When I'm procesing the data I put a call to FM

SAPGUI_PROGRESS_INDICATOR to display the progress.

I'm using transaction SAT to measure the performance and I've seen this:

Is possible that the call to ths FM is affecting the performance a lot?

Or I misinterpreted the result of this?

The result list is ordered by Gross time downwards.

Thanks in advance.

It does affect performance, it has to message the frontend about the progress. So dont call it too often, or make sure there is some processing between each step.

Possible fixes:

a: add IF count MOD 1000 = 0. then show progress,

b: use CL_PROGRESS_INDICATOR, it has a built in check to make sure progress is not shown too often

That's right.

Ok, thanks I've changed the code to call the FM only 20 times, each 5 %.

lv_cont_20 = lines( lt_table ) / 20.

lv_cont = lv_cont_20.

LOOP AT lt_table.

IF sy-tabix = lv_cont.

ADD lv_cont_20 TO lv_cont.

CALL METHOD cl_progress_indicator=>progress_indicate
i_text = lv_text
i_processed = sy-tabix
i_total = lines( lt_table ).
