    Why does the Data Engine go up and down so often?

    Jeremy Brown

      I couldn't find this by searching and Google wasn't helping with my line of questioning either.

       

      I have Tableau Server set up to send me email notifications about server health (recently upgraded to 9.1, but the same was true for 9.0 and 8.5). However, I have been getting a LOT of "Data Engine" notifications; going down, going up, and both in multiple times in one email. There's no apparent issue with them and I've been told I can ignore them, but the volume of these emails is making me nervous.

       

      What is Tableau Server telling me with emails as ambiguous as:

       

      Monday, September 21, 2015 9:23:43 AM PDT

      UP: Data Engine, [server name]:27042

       

      or even:

       

      Between 9:22:35 AM PDT and 9:23:35 AM PDT, the following events were processed:

       

      Monday, September 21, 2015 9:22:57 AM PDT

      DOWN: Data Engine, [server name]:27042

       

      Monday, September 21, 2015 9:23:01 AM PDT

      UP: Data Engine, [server name]:27042

      DOWN: Data Engine, [server name]:27042
