R script - timeout error

Hello,

 

I have a R script in Power BI Desktop.

 

I got a timeout error after 5 min. "power bi script execution is stopped because it was running for more than 5 minutes."  I saw in Power BI website, the timeout occurs after 30 min (Any R script that runs longer than 30 minutes – times out).

 

This is my first line in the R script editor, but it seems it is not working:

 

timeout=#duration(0,0,300,0)

 

Do you how can solve this issue? How can I make 5 min to 30 min?

 

Thanks!

Hi @Gozde,

 

Did you set any TimeOut option in R script itself like this

 

Based on my research, it is not available to customize timeout setting for R script execution in desktop right now. Below code works in M query in Query Editor for other data sources.

timeout=#duration(0,0,300,0)

 

Here are feature requests:

Urgently need Fix for "R script timeout"

Customize R Visual Timeout

Thanks for the help, Yuliana.

 

I did not use type of code as you mention.

 

I look at the requests, but one is complaining of 1 min run time and the other one is 30 min. Actually my problem is 5min, which is little bit weird. 

 

Any more suggection is welcome.

Hi @Gozde,

 

Did you load a large amount of data via R script? Please load less data to see whether issue persists.

 

Besides, a new desktop version has been released, please update for a test.

Yes, I update my desktop version to latest one (June version) and I put very limited data, but no luck.

Pathetic that there is no resolution to this. I have the same issue, suddenly pop up. Power BI is supposedly the leader in Data Analytics but can't run basic R-Script?  This needs to be fixed ASAP or I'll be left with switching to an alternate system.
