    configure tableau server on multithreading cores

    CHEN Junxian

      Hi, all,

       

      My tableau server has been installed on a virtual machine with 7 cores and 215GB memory.

       

      Given each of my core has 4 threads, how should I configure my server in such an environment?

       

      I learned in User Manual that it's better to configure N/4-N/2 backgrounders where N is the number of cores. In my case, it equals 7*4=28.

       

      Does it mean I should at least configure 7 backgrounders for my server? How about data server, vizQL server and application server?

       

      All advice appreciated!
