    Tableau desktop crashes while connecting to sparksql

    Sathish Subramaniam

      I am trying to connect tableau to sparksql in desktop.

      The dashboard loads in some cases, but often cases, the tableau desktop crashes completely abruptly.

       

      I checked the sparksql logs and it has no error.

       

      I followed this doc(A Guide to Setting up Tableau with Apache Spark ) and installed the simba driver in my mac.

      I also referenced (Tableau Spark SQL Connector Demo - YouTube ) everything went fine, but i am not sure why tableau desktop crashes.

       

      A simple table loads, but when loading full dashboard of 4 sheets it crashes.

       

      Can you guys please suggest what can be done here.

       

      Is it related to memory issue of tableau desktop running in my local mac or something else.

       

      Please suggest.
