    Queries submitted from a worker with no background process

    Varun Vasudevan

      Good Afternoon Tableau Gurus,


      Today morning we had a situation where we had around 40 queries running from Tableau in our SQL Server Database.

      To our surprise, these queries were released from 2 worker machines that DON'T have backgrounders.

      Also we only have 4 backgrounders in a different worker, so my assumption is that only 4 queries should be released from Tableau at once. Is this assumption correct?


      Has anyone seen this issue before?

      Why would a worker without backgrounder release queries? What could these queries be?


      Any help is highly appreciated.


      Thanks and Regards,
