I am doing a trial of both products and I have created a workbook in Desktop and loaded about 60 million records to an extract file. The response from the database is poor so I took this route. As I move around the dashboard I created with 5 or 6 objects, it takes 7-8 secords to refresh after modifying a filter or clicking on a graph. I am running this on my laptop with only 3 gig of RAM so I didn't expect lighting response time. I then published to Server (still not super big, but it has 32 gig RAM), but my response time is the same. Is this to be expected or did I miss something along the way?
By going through the browser to the worksheet on the server, what memory resources are actually utillized by Tableau...the laptop or the server?
