    Tableau Server performance - data sources / workbook size impact


      Greetings all,


      I was working with another associate at work that uses Tableau server. Their organization has seen some really slow performance using Tableau server to consume the reports. 2 things I noticed and I'm asking everyone here if they might have an impact:


      1) They have over 80 published data sources, most of which are backend data bases (i.e. not Excel files).

      2) Some of the workbooks they've published are over 300 MB in size, including approx 5 that are over 1 GB (one is 2.9 GB!)


      If they would remove (or consolidate) some of the published data sources and/or remove some of the larger workbooks, would they help out any in terms of performance?
