Optimize Refresh Time



I want to achieve less time for the process "Opening the file", "Refresh the file" and "Save / Publish the file".


The model has two main tables of 2m rows each and some small tables (no more than 1k rows each). 


I'm wondering, if I scale up the ram of the server from 16GB to 32GB (or/and processor -> currently: CPU E5-2686 v4 @ 2.30GHz) is going to decrease the overall process time and save 40%, 50% of the time.

Hi @mdemos02 ,

try this : 🙂

Remember you can only save files with a limit of 2GB on the Report Server.
