Discussion Board for collaboration on Qlik NPrinting.
Can anyone suggest any proper approach to reduce the Reports generation timings ? Below are the details might require:-
No. of Reports: 3800 reports(avg)-Cyclic Reports
Task Type: Daily-once a day
16 Cores CPU (Intel Xeon Gold 6238 CPU @ 2.1 GHz), 96 GB RAM
QlikSense Server Nov 2019
NPrinting Nov 2019, Single NPrinting Engine
Please Note: Due to some limitations, all products above are installed on the same server.
Any help over here would be highly appreciable. Thank You!!
First of all - you are running unsupported configuration - there is no point discussing it until you actually have supported environment (separate servers).
Second of all - performance depends on Qlik Sense app design, used expressions, data model, application size, approach used when designing NPrinting report, objects used (data or image), number of recipients, recipient filters number of cycles/depth of cycles used etc... It is just too much to talk about and it is hard to start without having a full picturee
There is too many variables and your question is not really community question - it requires more of a consulting approach with access to report templates, access to Qlik Sense app etc...
Based on what you wrote there is no point asking Qlik support for guidance as they will tell you the same thing - that you need to have supported environment before making any other step.
Sorry - but without having above mentioned information I think we will not be able to go far.
Thanks for the quick revert. I know the environment setup is not ideal but would provide you with some application level details for below requirement if you could assist on the same:-

1) Simple 1 Table Report
2) No front-end expressions are used for any columns(13 columns) at application level.
3) Data Model is simple containing -> 1 Fact table and 1 Dimensional table
4) Application size: 13 to 15 MB
4) No image been used in report design.
5) All reports get published in one specific folder on the same server.
6) 2 Dimensional Cyclic Report been created
7) No Filters applied.
😎 Taking around 4 hours for completion(avg 3800 reports)
Hope I provided you required details. Thank You.
Ok i see...
looks like 3s seconds per report roughly...
you can try above for testing. Since it is not changing your template it should be easy to test.
if i come up with some other ideas i will let you know.
by the way-when you say you dont have front end expressions... did you mean that you built ui table using only dimensions?
As @Lech_Miszkiewicz aòready told installing Qlik Sense and Qlik NPrinting on the same computer is not supported. This configuration must not be used in production (and in my opinion also as proof of concept or in other testing projects).
The reason way it is unsupported is that one of the two server will use more and more hardware resources so the other one will not have enough to work correctly.
So before proceeding to deeper investigation and performance tuning you must move to a supported configuration as documented in the help site.
I strongly suggest also to upgrade to latest version (June 2020).
