I have a number of users that connect to server from the Tableau Mobile iPad app. Of course when they are done using the app they just move onto the next thing. They rarely goto Settings and logout. It seems to be causing an increasing problem on my server side as these 'ghost' session remain Active on the server and chew up resources. Eventually every couple of days I have to reboot the server.
Is there a way to disconnect them without rebooting or have them time out after a period of time?
Have you changed your server idle timeouts from the defaults? Server should auto log out users after 4 hours
|wgserver.session.idle_limit||240||The number of minutes of idle time before a login to the web application times out.|
