Need help tracking an issue with a report that uses MS report services, this report ran ok last week and this week just hangs there with no results.
any ideas how I can track this down, the database it queries is running a live retail system and transactions are being received and we see no issues with any other functionality or database  performance as well as other reports are running with no issues.
This is an important inventory report and I need to get it fixed but am not having any success.

regards,

Try to run the query that populated the report outside and check if returns any values. If return values then check the Connection that the report do with the database and the timeout that took for the execution.

Thanks for the reply, I will get it executed directly on the database, however I dont think connection is an issue several other reports run with no issues.

I have restored a backup of the database in the lab and I have found something that is causing me some concerns, we have a script we use to re-index all of the databases we have including a much larger database. This script used to take about 2 to 3 hours to run, I executed this script in the lab and it is still running increasing the LDF size by 127 GB (I may have a larger issue here than the report)?
attached is the script, any ideas where I can start looking, I'm lost in this one!!

Let me suggest you something. Why don't you rebuild the indexes only on the database/Tables that you really needed and also separated as a maintenance plan for each database and not all at once?.

As long as I can see on the script they rebuild the index on every database/table except from the Sql Default Databases

true, but the issue I'm having right now is exactly what you are suggesting, I'm running just one primary key index on one table only, that process has taken over 24 hours, several weeks back it took less than 20 minutes.

Did you try to restart the server or the service (SQL Agent) ?, also check the logs of the database to see the size
