2315436 - Frequency of ODS update in Advanced Reporting


How often is the ODS used in Advanced Reporting updated with changes made to the source data, e.g. Employee Central?

Changes in the source application are recorded every minute, but the server applies the backlog of changes to the ODS on each instance in a cycle.  The time between updates for a given instance (in effect the time it takes to come around to the same instance again) can vary greatly; for legacy ODS it can take up to several hours (or over a day if there is an issue causing lag) whereas an instance using Realms on a server with no issues can update after as little as 10 minutes. 

Note that this only applies to the Detailed Reporting submenu; all Live Data is taken directly from the source so no loading is necessary.
