How BI Testing Solutions Can Improve
Your Tableau Server Monitoring Strategy
Tableau Server Monitoring For Your Dashboards
Operating a Tableau Server deployment at scale and ensuring performance user expectations are met requires continuous and proactive monitoring. Server and System Administrators should use a combination of actions to monitor their Tableau Server, for example, hardware usage monitoring, data from Tableau Server’s Repository, and external tools to monitor the health of Tableau Server. In this article, you will discover the importance of Tableau Server monitoring for your dashboards and how you can leverage our automated testing solution in your monitoring strategy.
The Importance of a Tableau Server Monitoring Strategy
In the words of Tableau, a “set-it-and-forget-it” deployment will fail to meet the needs of highly-engaged users, and so implementing the right Tableau Server monitoring strategy is critical to ensure your deployment success. Here are three reasons why a strategy is important:
1. Supporting deployment at scale
Proactively monitoring your Tableau Server dashboards helps maintain a deployment at scale.
2. Ensuring optimal health
It’s important to guarantee optimal health and performance with the ability to troubleshoot as needed.
3. Leveraging the right tools
Implementing the proper tools, alerts and logs are needed to support monitoring.
