Scheduled refresh always takes three times as long as on-demand refresh

Each scheduled refresh takes three times as long as on-demand refresh. Is this a bug or a feature?

Re: Scheduled refresh always takes three times as long as on-demand refresh

@fbackes The scheduled refresh time is not the Exact time the refresh will take place. From my understanding the goal is that it kicks off within the hour (usually ~30 minutes) from the scheduled refresh time that was set. This is most likely why it appears to take longer, because it hasn't actually executed.

Re: Scheduled refresh always takes three times as long as on-demand refresh

HI @fbackes,

 

Based on document, it said that the 'scheduled refresh' not fully accurate refresh, it may have some delay.

 

Note:

When you configure a time for scheduled refresh, there can be a delay of up to one hour before it begins.

Re: Scheduled refresh always takes three times as long as on-demand refresh

Reading the question I don't think @fbackes is talking about the time the refresh starts but rather the time the refresh takes to complete from start to finish. I have the same question. When I watch my refresh happening in it takes much much longer to complete than a manual refresh. Any idea why that is?

Hi @Justair07 ,

 

I'm having the same refresh duration difference between manual refresh and scheduled refresh. Have you figured out why this happened? Thanks!
