Not sure what your reference point is. If I run reports On-Demand, they do usually take longer to run than if I am running a task in the scheduler. In one of my reports, I can run in the task scheduler and average 30-45 seconds to run depending on the data volume. If I run the same report on demand from an access point, it almost always takes 2 minutes or longer.
Adam, my friend, or anyone have any benchmark data on the difference in performance between on demand and task scheduling?
I do not have any true benchmark information but Mike, I agree with you - I have noticed that runing the same report on demand takes longer than the task.
Question - in on demand, are you running a single report or a task, and is the report being emailed to multiple people, or are you using dynamic naming - these are feature/functions that can cause a report to take longer to run
