    TabMon v1.1 - helping you see and understand data for Tableau 10.0 and beyond

    Rahul Motwani

      At Tableau, we always strive to empower you (our customers) with software and tools that help you see and understand your data. Last year, we released the initial version of TabMon to help server admin's monitor the health of their servers. Today we are releasing the next version, TabMon v1.1, that has support for additional counters and feature enhancements that you asked for.


      Outlined below are some of the highlights of this version:


      1. Updated JMX counters for Tableau 9.3 and 10.0 releases
      2. Enhanced data management features including -
        1. The ability to set a data retention threshold via the config file, so that older data is automatically dropped based on timestamp
        2. A condensed data model that decreases the number of rows inserted into the database
        3. Automatic index generation so that your data loads faster
      3. A host of defect fixes in response to issues submitted by our users via GitHub and the Tableau Community Server Admin forum




      NOTE: If you are upgrading from a previous version of TabMon, the installer will handle most of the upgrade work for you, but during the upgrade your TabMon.config and Counters.config files will be overwritten. Please follow the upgrade steps in our Installation Guide for a smooth upgrade experience.


      To reiterate, TabMon is community-supported, and we are releasing the full source code under the MIT open source license. We hope you'll add your own contributions to this tool. We are excited to see where you take it.


      You can download TabMon v1.1 and it's source on Tableau’s Github page.
