How long is it taking to return the 25 rows to Power Apps?

Is it filtering these rows from a larger data set in Power Apps?

How long does the same data take in SSMS?

it took me 50 seconds to return 16 rows. other times it will take over 1 min.

I forgot to include not filtering talking place and querying to data in SQL is quick.

In SSMS takes about second to retrieve the same number of rows.

Is this true with all data coming through your on-prem gateway or just one specific data set?

Querying our on-prem data thru Power BI no issues.  Only issue we see are thru power apps and DBogunovic who comment earlier is the creator of the power app.

It's hard to say what could be causing the slowness on the Power Apps side. Here is some documentation on tuning the data gateway

I would suggest enabling the additional logging if you haven't already. Then, pull the rows into Power Apps and look through the logs.

You can also do a SQL trace in the SQL Server Profiler, which I've used to tune some Power Apps query performance. That may not help you a lot unless your data is coming from a view or stored procedure, though.
