    Two server configuration for improving performance?

    James Golden

      Hi folks,

       

      We are looking to add another machine to our configuration for having two servers for Tableau.  We are currently running one machine, a Windows 16bit, with 4 cores and 16.0 GB RAM.

       

      We are going to be setting up our system on VM; and will be introducing a new machine as a worker server.

       

      We will using mostly extracts, that will run in off hours for approximately 90% of our processes.

       

      What we are considering is moving all the background processes off to the worker machine; but we are still evaluating.

       

      We currently have processes set as 1 repository, 1 data engine, 2 server web app, 4 VizQL, 2 data server, and 5 background tasks.

       

      Can anyone recommend a successful configuration similar to what we are looking to accomplish?

       

      Thanks,

        Jamie
