Give us some performance optimization techniques in Tableau?

In Tableau, we can employ a number of techniques which are essentially troubleshooting techniques that help in optimizing Tableau’s performance.

We can optimize Tableau’s performance by practicing the methods given below.

1. Work with Log Files : Having your server log records with you can help in detecting issues that affect the working of Tableau Server.

2. Troubleshoot Data Sources : If we are having issues regarding data sources not being able to connect to a data source, unable to discover a data source, etc.

We need to take care of the permission settings for data source connections and of the data source connection page.

3. Troubleshoot Subscriptions : If you are having issues with your membership subscriptions and getting messages regarding inability to render information from Tableau on mail.

Then you need to take care of certain things such as incident database shutdown, foundation process timeout, no membership symbol, invalid memberships, etc.

4. Troubleshoot SAML : We can investigate issues related to SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) by using the log files that store SAML related information.

5. Troubleshooting Mutual SSL Authentication : In order to resolve SSL authentication issues, we need to contact the Tableau Server Administrator.

6. Handle Extract Refresh Alerts : We need to take care of the extract refreshes if they are not happening properly.

If the automatic refresh of data extracts are not timely, then we need to address this issue at the Tableau Server.

Once this issue is resolved, Tableau’s performance is improved greatly.

7. Troubleshoot Inconsistent Process Status : Tableau’s performance is affected if there are issues in showing process status consistently.

We need to troubleshoot this issue at the Tableau Server to ensure smooth working of the software.
