Hi all,


I am creating similar kinds (not same) of Reports for 5 different Geographies.

What will be better in terms of Report Performance- Creating One table in EG for all the Geos and filtering the data in Reports or Creating 5 different tables and using them in 5 Reports??


PS - The data is huge for all the Geos and the Reports are taking considerable amount of time in Opening.


Thanks in advance,

Hi Karuna, you should do some testing first. If you create one big table in EG, and use a datasourcefilter in VA on the LASR table, and it takes more than ca 7 seconds to open a report (more than that, and the report users are going to be annoyed) you should create 5 smaller LASR tables.

I don't remember the source, but reasearh found about 7 seconds to be max for opening a report before users have a negative experience, so I always try to have that as my limit. The alternative then is to add more hardware.
