Symptoms

Exporting CSV from reports that have Hierarchical fields is very slow.

For example to download 50-60k records will often time out.
Another version of the same report using attribute fields instead of hierarchical fields. In those cases you are able to download about a million records in 1-2 minutes. Therefore, the hierarchical field is suspected to cause the slow down with the CSV export.
