How to start a performance recording in Tableau Desktop: Quick Tip

Performance recordings can help you identify which parts of your workbook are causing slow performance. In this video, I show you how to start one and how to get the results after starting it. Tableau notes: https://j.mp/3gcHVwu To find out what’s slowing it down, you can use a performance recording to evaluate your workbook. This is an especially good idea if you plan to share or publish the workbook. 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 Compiling query Geocoding Connections to data sources Layout computations Extract generation Blending data Server rendering (Tableau Server only) Tableau support may ask that you create a performance workbook as they work with you to diagnose performance issues.
