What amazes most is that I never knew it existed. Found it by chance looking for something else.
That is awfully a lot of time to begin with;
Two years the biggest report took about 25 seconds. Last week it was 16 seconds. Latest hardware upgrade got it down to 12. Now this function change shaved another 2 seconds off it.
I don't think they can be generated any quicker. The mysql stuff takes about 3 seconds, the php parsing of the data and formatting the output tables takes about 7 seconds.
