Most of the performance tuning or optimizing tableau comes down to 3 major points:

  • Optimizing for User traffic: This involves optimizing the server to reduce the time spent on processing a user request.
  • Optimization for Extracts: This optimization helps the server to refresh the extracts on a published data source. This is highly relevant for organizations having to deal with large amounts of data which changes frequently and needs to be updated.
  • Optimizing for Query Heavy Environments: This is a custom server configuration to enhance tableau for query performance in workbooks using extracts as a data source.
