How can you perform load testing in Tableau?

Users can do load testing with the help of Tableau Server performance testing solution called TabJolt. However, this is third-party software that is not supported by tableau directly. Therefore, it may be installed using other open-source products.

Load testing should be conducted with TabJolt on an identical test environment with content restored from the production environment.

Developing a test plan:

  • Choose representative workbooks.
  • Model the expected usage.
  • Think about peak usage.
  • Run for at least ten minutes.
  • Include think time.
  • Stop other work on the server.
