Issue

When you access Ask Data to request a data source, the following error message appears:

"Data source is too slow to analyze"

Environment

Resolution

The following two workarounds may help:
  • Request that the data source owner reduce the size of the data source.
  • If the data source is a live connection, convert it to an extract.

Cause
