    TabMon v1.2 - improved for you in time for TC 2017!

    Rahul Motwani

      Just in time for Tableau Conference 2017, we are releasing the next version of TabMon - v1.2. This version has support for additional counters and feature enhancements that you have asked for. Outlined below are some of the highlights of this version:

      1. Updated JMX counters for Tableau 10.1, 10.2+ releases
      2. Sample timestamps in UTC, rather than local times
      3. Ability to poll counters from remote machines whose Windows computer names differ from the DNS address
      4. TabMon User Guide - now in markdown to make it easier to search and find content



      • If you are a new user setting up TabMon for the first time, please follow the instructions in the TabMon User Guide.
      • If you are an existing TabMon user upgrading from TabMon v1.0 or v1.1, the installer will handle most of the upgrade work for you, but during the upgrade your TabMon.config and Counters.config files will be overwritten.  Follow the steps in the  Upgrading section of the user guide for a smooth experience.


      To reiterate, TabMon is community-supported, and we are releasing the full source code under the MIT license. We hope you'll add your own contributions to this tool. We are excited to see where you take it. Any defects or feature requests should be directed to the TabMon Git Issues tracker.


      You can download TabMon v1.2 and it's source on Tableau’s Github page.
