Server Configuration Changes without Downtime and Binding Specific Users/Workbooks to Specific Workers


Tamas Foldi, Tableau Zen Master


If you know what each Tableau Server component does, you can unlock tremendous possibilities. Taking control of Tableau Server's Gateway traffic management rules you can apply configuration changes without a "hard restart" or downtime, and more importantly, without impacting users. Code for the this "soft restart" will be shared on the ISATUG Github. This is just the beginning. In this session, he will also show some of the more sophisticated configuration tweaks he has deployed at Fortune 500s allowing you to dedicate a specific worker(s) to specific workbooks or users.
