SSRS No Delay for First Report of the Day

What?
This article describes a solution our reporting server administrators found to cut the loading time of the first report of the day.

Why?
Take any SSRS report, if one of us was the first to run it on that day, it would take an additional 60 seconds to get with it and display the report. Any subsequent running of the report loaded it almost immediately.

How?
There are a few options out there but this one made a noticeable difference. Applicable to the server, it will affect all reports on that server. Apply to each server that requires it. Let your report server administrators do this:
  1. On the server, open the XML file: C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSRS10.MSSQLSERVER\Reporting Services\ReportServer\RsReportServer.config
  2. Set the recycle time to 0: <RecycleTime>0</RecycleTime>
  3. Restart the SSRS service
