    Report Designer - Asynchronous vs Synchronous

    odinswrath
      Greetings fellow Oracle groupies,

      I have been working with BI Publisher EE for the past few months and would like to hear the community's thoughts around the Asynchronous mode option that is available when designing a report.

      The 'Report Designer's Guide for Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher' (page 2-13) states the following:

      Asynchronous Mode

      Default: Not enabled.

      Reports run in asynchronous mode use a unique thread to
      execute the report when run in the report viewer. This
      allows BI Publisher to cleanly terminate the thread if a user
      cancels the report execution. Note that there are
      performance implications when enabling this property.

      Which option would you choose? Why? or perhaps a better question would be in what circumstances would you switch this option on?
