On BSP, it seems that having the pricing margin sent for an entity higher node in the data_export file is slowing down BSP complete calculation.

Currently have a process of 18 group of entities (total 330 entities) in the monthly load. The requirement is to process them for complete calculation.

In everyone of those loads, the Pricing Margin (PM) parameters are sent for the higher node (Ex : 81595211 in that example).

It seems these parameters are not necessary. Even if the takes only 5 seconds to be transferred from Essbase to RDBMS, is it possible that it explains the fact that the BSP_PM_ProcCall takes much longer that it takes before every time executing the Cash Flow Engine (CFE).  Per the 'Job console' take 10 minutes to complete...and sometimes, it is longer for less entities.

For the Complete calculation (10 steps) time to get the result are fine, but should this particular Stored Procedure can have some tuning to be done or some junk (Like those ‘higher’ node parameters) are processed.

Expect faster processing for loading pricing margin assumptions.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Run CFE complete calc
2. Check times for loading BSP_PM_ProcCall
