    Tableau Server Down and Up Again


      I got an email Tableau Server Down

      this email notification was based out of a script that runs and checks tabadmin status-  it runs every 15 mins.via task sccheduler


      but when i logged in and checked, the server was up and running fine


      So how do i go about finding an RCA on this?  any specific log file to check to see if it actually went down and up again?

          Hi jyoti thakar,


          If you installed Tableau Server in the default location, the log directory is C:\ProgramData\Tableau\Tableau Server\data\tabsvc\logs. The ProgramData folder is hidden unless you explicitly make it visible.


          The following log files track activities related to the web application, database, and index:

          C:\ProgramData\Tableau\Tableau Server\data\tabsvc


          If you have installed Tableau Server to a non-default location (for example, on a drive other than the system drive), then the logs directory is located at <installation path or drive>\Tableau\Tableau Server\logs. For more information, see Installation directory.


          As well, you can find more information about the Logs archives File Locations: Server Log File Locations


          Let me know if you need some more guidance
