BIDS Query Designer very slow

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 02, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
BIDS Query Designer seems to be very slow while saving the query or opening the query designer when you've got quite a lot of Query Parameters. When I remove all the query parameters, the query designer seems to be running smoothly. Editing a query with about 10 to 15 query parameters takes ages this way! Is there something I can do about this?!

BIDS Query Designer very slow in VS 2008

I am in the process of upgrading my Report Server projects from 2005 to 2008.  These reports use an Analysis Services 2005 data source and have queries that are anywhere from 20 to 100 lines of MDX.  After upgrading a report, when I open or save a dataset in the Query Designer, it takes up to 20 seconds.  In 2005, this would happen almost instantly. Running SQL Server Profiler, I see that there is an extensive number (600+) of Discover events going on with the Analysis Services server while the Query Designer loads. My version of Visual Studio is 9.0.30729.1 SP and I am running Windows XP SP2. Thanks, Mitch

SSRS Query Designer (in BIDS) does not generate ANSI SQL

Hello, I have a problem when using SQL Server 2005 BIDS (Business Intelligence Development Studio) when connected to an Oracle data source.  The Query Designer generates the old Oracle SQL syntax instead of ANSI SQL.  This is with the Oracle 10g client installed. So, I would really appreciate it if anybody knows how to get the Query Designer to generate the ANSI SQL.   Thanks, Stuart

Slow page load during a list query one time during the day


We have a monitoring tool set to check to see if the home pages for our 3 web apps load in under 60 seconds every 10 minutes.  All 3 web apps load in under 3 seconds on every 10 minute check except for one exception.  One check every day one of the web app's home page takes longer than 60 seconds to load.  This happens at 11:45PM when there is very little user usage on the environment.  The characteristics of this page are as follows: The only thing on the page is a list view web part which was added by the browser.  The page has not been customized with SPD or code at all.  The list that it pulls is a simple links list that has 281 items on it.  The view pulls all 281 items and displays them in sets of 100.  I cannot find any associated event in the server events and/or SharePoint ULS logs nor are there any daily sharepoint timer jobs running at that time.  Our full index happens at midnight with incremental happening hourly.  Our enviroment is 2 WFEs, 1 App/indexer and we have a separate SQL cluster backend.  

Could someone lead me possibly in the direction I should take next in my troubleshooting?   

FAST search query is slow...

Hi, we are using fast search for sharepoint 2010. We are crawling an external data source and this is used for search queries. we have around 30 metadata properties and all are full-text indexed. however, the search operation is slow for a database of 5k records in intranet (webserver and database server are in different geographic regions). typically a 100 item search takes 9-10 sec. it get worse over internet and the search query varies from 10-45 sec for 100 items. Any pointers will be helpful. thanks.  

Slow query execution

Hello, I have a strange problem that suddenly happened. I have a Windows 7 Ultimate OS running SSMS 2008. When I run a query or an stored proc against a server (the server is remote and passes through a VPN tunnel) it can take me 40 seconds to get the query to complete. But when I run a similar query against another server located at the same location (go through the same tunnel) I get the results in 1 second.  I select about 400 rows on both servers. The slow response comes from a server that runs sql 2005 and the fast response is sql 2008. I asked a friend that works in the same office with me and uses the same connection as I do to run the same queries and he gets the result in 1 second. Does anyone has any ideas what can cause such problems?  I tried to remove and reinstall all the sql server components from my computer but nothing helped? Thanks, Oded Tal

MDX works fine in SSMS but not in query designer

Hi all,   I am trying to include this query in my query designer in SSRS. The query below is as follows:WITH MEMBER [Time].[Fiscal Month].[All].[ Subtotal] AS ' AGGREGATE( EXISTING { [Time].[Fiscal Month].[All].CHILDREN }) ', SOLVE_ORDER = 1000  SELECT NON EMPTY { { { { [Time].[Fiscal Month].[All].CHILDREN }, { [Time].[Fiscal Month].[All].[ Subtotal] } } * { { [Measures].[SKU Distinct Count] } } } } ON COLUMNS , NON EMPTY { [Sales Force].[Retailer Code].[All].CHILDREN } ON ROWS  FROM [Sales]CELL PROPERTIES VALUE, FORMATTED_VALUE, CELL_ORDINAL The error i am getting isThe query cannot be prepared: The query must have at least one axis.

Query Designer question

I am not sure where to post this question, so I guess it is here: I have a VERY large query that joins quite a few tables. I am using the graphical designer to get the tables all linked together. However the graphical designer seems to place the order of the tables in a random order resulting in a hodge podge of left and right joins.   In the graphical designer, is there a way to order the from clause?

Very slow performance with a query involving JOINS

I am experiencing extremely slow performance on a particular SQL query using SQL compact.  This same query completes in less than one second on my regular SQL server.  With SQL compact, I am actually not even sure if the query ever completes.  As I type this I am testing it from SQL management studio, and it's up to 17 minutes and 40 seconds still executing so far. Since I am not experiencing this on most of my other queries, I have little doubt the slowness is due to the volume of data in these tables, coupled with the fact that I am doing the joins.  I made sure that foreign key constraints are in place for the columns that the joins are based on.  From what I've read, this also ensures that appropriate indexes are created, although I am starting to wonder about that. This is the query: SELECT TOP (200) t.BusinessEntityID, t.BusinessName, t.IsTowTruck, t.IsHospital, t.TowTruckLastUsed, t.BusinessLocked, cn.Address1, cn.City, cn.State, cn.PostalCode, cnp.PhoneNumber as TopPhoneNo, GetDate() as LastUpdatedDate, GetDate() as CreatedDate FROM tblBusinessEntity t LEFT JOIN cnBusinessEntityLocation cn ON cn.cnID in (SELECT TOP (1) cnID FROM cnBusinessEntityLocation where cnBusinessEntityLocation.Active = 1 AND cnBusinessEntityLocation.BusinessEntityID = t.BusinessEntityID

MDX query performance is slow for complex logic implementation in Calculated Members.

We have implemented a calculated members which involves multiple calculated members  called in a nested e.q. Cal1 calls Cal2 and Cal2 calls  Cal3  and Cal3 calls Cal4 .  And when browing Cal1 through Excel it takes around 30 mins for getting result from a Partition having row count around 5 million. Follwing are the information on the scenario I am having: We are having partitioning in the cube. one partition contains around 4-6 million records Processers on Query Server: 4 quad core RAM on the Query Server: 64 GB Calculated members having simple calculation logics are giving results in no time. There is a Calculated members which calls 6 intermediate calculated in nested way and with small Data Set like 5-6 k rows it is running fine.   Any help will be much appreciated.   Regards, Sandeep

Query Designer - Pane - Results grayed-out?

In Query Designer, right click, select pane -- the option for Results is unavailable (grayed-out)?

Refcursor compared slow to sql query

Hi, I have created stored procedure with refcursor in Oracle 11g. The execution time of the procedure takes nearly 3 mins whereas when i execute only the select statements it takes nearly 35 mins.  How can tune my stored procedure when using refcursor.   Thanks, gayatri

CAST in delete query-Performance is so slow

Hi all, I've below join in the delete statementt, but it's taking so long the query run, the performance is really bad because of cast conversion, is there a better way, especially performace wise to fasten this below join, A.PHONE in nvarchar data type and DNC.PHONE_NUMBER  is in bigint data type.   A.PHONE=CAST(DNC.PHONE_NUMBER as varchar (15)) Thank you.

Generic Query Designer displaying non standard syntax

I've just discovered a problem with the Generic Query Designer on my machine. When I do a simple join of two tabels it does not display in the SQL pane as standard syntax, so instead of SELECT a.1 from ainner join b on a.1=b.1It does SELECT a.1from a, bwhere a.1 = b.1I am doing this against an oracle 10g database, it will run the query, but I want the query designer to out put at standard SQLI am presuming that it is a setting in SSBIDS, but I don't know why it is doing this. Any suggestions?

Adding a table or view multiple times when building a query with BI Report Designer and Report Build

How can I add a table/view multiple times to a single query by using BI Report Designer or Report Builder 3.0? In Report Designer I managed (workaround) to add one table multiple times by creating multiple Named Queries and having the same SELECT. Still I don't know how to add one table multiple times in Report Builder 3.0.

Report Builder 3.0 for Oracle with Graphical Query Designer

Is there a possibility to have Graphical Query Designer in Report Builder 3.0 in case the connection is made to an Oracle database (through .NET Provider for Oracle for example)? I need to offer to the end users the means to build their own reports. Every user has associated a group of database objects and as soon as users are added new database objects are added. Therefore I cannot create a model because it needs to be changed frequently and the model in this case would contain objects to which the user does not have access. The only option is that the user should create his report query in a friendly manner. So the query text editor is of no good in this case.   I've found in documentation that for Oracle and other databases there is no Graphical Query Designer: In Report Builder 2.0, to specify a query for data source types Oracle, OLE DB, ODBC, and Teradata, you must use the text-based query designer (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd220607(SQL.100).aspx). Is there a way to have Graphical Query Designer in Report Builder 3.0 or should I look for other products? In case Report Builder cannot solve this problem can you make some product recommendations - ad-hoc web reporting for .NET?

2005 query runs slow in 2008



I'm running some of our stored  procedures, written on 2005, on a test 2008 server

One of the stored procedures runs much slower on 2008, the execution plan is considerably different as well.

I've tried changing the compatability level, to no effect.

I'm wondering f there are any general actions I can take to mitigate this issue, or whether I'm just going to have to deal with these problems on a one by one basis.





The mdx-query MMSM works - BIDS error


for me it's very strange, the following mdx-query

  exists([Date].[Month].[Month].ALLMEMBERS,[Current FY]) ON COLUMNS
  {[Company].[Company].[All]} ON COLUMNS
   {[City].[City].&[ADR]} ON COLUMNS
    {[Company].[Company].&[ASZ]} ON COLUMNS
   FROM [Cube]

the query works fine in SSMS and returns correct result but in SSRS BIDS returns error

TITLE: Microsoft Visual Studio

Query preparation failed.


The query cannot be prepared: The query must have at least one axis. The first axis of the query should not have multiple hierarchies, nor should it reference any dimension other than the Measures dimension..
