File size reduction approach in Active Reports
« on: 17 Aug 2017 06:31:51 am »
Hi All,

I want to reduce the file size of my dashboard from 46 MB to 20 MB or less. Please suggest any approach.

Nancy

The active report cookbook has some suggestions in this regard. Take a look at the section called Guidelines to Building an IBM Active Report:

Do you have a lot of charts on decks? If so, you might find a big improvement by replacing them with visualizations.

Thanks Lynn :)
Yes, I am using 9-10 charts in data decks with many different unique combinations. Can you please elaborate on visualisations as to how we can use it in Active reports. Also, could you please tell if we need some enhancements in cognos version to achieve it. Currently, we are working on 10.1.1 version of Cognos.

Regards,
Nancy
