      What you'll learn
      If you know what each Tableau Server component does, you can unlock tremendous possibilities. Taking control of Tableau Server's Gateway traffic management rules you can apply configuration changes without a "hard restart" or downtime, and more importantly, without impacting users. Code for the this "soft restart" will be shared on the ISATUG Github. This is just the beginning. In this session, he will also show some of the more sophisticated configuration tweaks he has deployed at Fortune 500s allowing you to dedicate a specific worker(s) to specific workbooks or users. Here are a few potential questions to get you started:

      • Want to do QA on a dedicated site but not risk impacting production users in other sites all in the same cluster? No problem.
      • Want to give each business group their own dedicated hardware by allocating them their own site? Sure thing.


      Tamas will show you, and it's easier than you think. Participation will be limited to the first 100 attendees due to our GotoMeeting's subscription. You won't want to miss the opportunity to learn and ask questions from the world's foremost expert on Tableau Server. It will be a lot of fun.
