Dataset Refresh Statistics on Desktop

Hi All,
There is QLIK vs Power BI War going on at my workplace 😄
And I need to compare the time taken to refresh data internally rather than on the cloud.

I know we can get the Dataset refresh stats on Power BI Services. But how do I get the same information on my locally refreshed PBIX file? Like time taken to refresh each table?

I am trying to load for some really huge tables and they seem to take severval hours when refreshed via a Gateway. While same tables on QLIK are refreshed in 40Mins!

Hi @Anonymous ,

Are there any advanced options in your query table? (e.g. merge, combine, reference other queries, invoke custom function)

AFAIK, some advanced operations will cause additional time and memory to spend on calculation. (buffer function can reduce these additional spends on resources)
