    Recommended architecture for heavy Subscription usage

    Nick Bachofen

      Good Afternoon,

       

      I have a client that is intending to heavily use the subscription (email delivery of reports) feature of Tableau Server.

       

      What is your recommendation to architect & manage up to 1000 daily subscription emails?

       

      • Live connection to SQL Server database
      • Emails are sent out early in the morning

       

      Current issues:

      • SQL Server is unable to keep up with the number of subscriptions Tableau is sending.

       

      Questions:

      • Can the client "throttle" the subscriptions?
      • Can the client architect server differently to lessen the hit on SQL Server?

       

      Please ask away if I am missing a key piece of information.

       

      Thank you.
