How many logs to get at once with Tempo getWorklog()?

We are using getWorklog to pull the logged hours of ~600 users into SAP. That ends up being about 14k worklogs per month. The query takes about 5 minutes to run which seems like a very long time.

My first idea was to not run the query for the whole month and instead break it down into weeks or days.

I'm curious how everybody else is dealing with worklogs. How many do you get at a time? Is the speed we're seeing normal? JIRA runs pretty nicely otherwise...

Hi Seb,

the performance of the query for 14k worklogs depends on your system, but shortening the timeperiod will increase performance. 

Many users (including ourselves at Tempo) run this query once every hour and use the "dffOnly=true" parameter to get only the changes since the last run. 

Please take a look at and for more information.
