I am running LEM 5.6 and when I launch a report through the Reports Console, it seems to run endlessly.
I should mention that I am new to LEM; the installation has only bee up for about a week or two.
Support is telling me that dev is working on a known iossue with slow reports. However this is not slow; it just runs endlessly.
I maybe have 30 Windows servers sending data to LEM.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
I wanted to pop in on this thread and let you know that LEM 5.7 RC3 (just released yesterday) has a focused effort to eliminate these "endless reports" issues (with side effects of improving performance in related scenarios where they might not be technically endless but might as well be).
If any of you are able to upgrade and report back on your experience, that'd be awesome. We're hoping to confirm that in customer environments things are tracking the right direction before we release in a few weeks. Thanks!!
We have this problem as well with several different LEM systems that we have setup. We have several reports set to run and most days not all of them complete though it does seem inconsistent for us.
It's funny, when I talked to support about it they indicated I was they only case they had seen of this yet I come here and see many other people having the same issue.
The two issues (slow vs. endless) may be related or the same root problem. We issued a hotfix last week that you might want to try that changes the available resources to run reports. Some customers have reported this helps/resolves their issues with long/indefinite/failing reports, especially with more data or longer timeframes.
