How to create a performance recording

EXPLANATION

The Performance Recording feature in Tableau records performance information about key events as you interact with a workbook. You can then view performance metrics in a workbook that Tableau creates to analyze and troubleshoot different events that are known to affect performance:

Query execution

Geo coding

Connections to data sources

Layout computations

Extract generation

Blending data

Server blending (Tableau Server only)

Tableau support may ask that you create a performance workbook as they work with you to diagnose performance issues.

Enable Performance Recording for a Site
By default, performance recording is not enabled for a site. A server administrator can enable performance recording site by site.

Navigate to the site for which you want to enable performance recording.

Click Settings:

Under Workbook Performance Metrics, select Record workbook performance metrics.

Click Save.

Start a Performance Recording for a View
Open the view for which you want to record performance.

When you open a view, Tableau Server appends “:iid=<n>” after the URL. This is a session ID. For example:

http://10.32.139.22/#/views/Coffee_Sales2013/USSalesMarginsByAreaCode?:iid=1
Type :record_performance=yes& at the end of the view URL, immediately before the session ID. For example:

http://10.32.139.22/#/views/Coffee_Sales2013/USSalesMarginsByAreaCode?:record_performance=yes&:iid=1
Load the view.

A visual confirmation that performance recording has started is the Performance option in the view toolbar:

View a Performance Recording
Click Performance to open a performance workbook. This is an up-to-the-minute snapshot of performance data. You can continue taking additional snapshots as you continue working with the view; the performance data is cumulative.

Move to a different page or remove :record_performance=yes from the URL to stop recording.
