    Idle data source connections

    Jack Baker

      Is it possible to reduce the time Tableau server (backgrounder) keeps a connection open to a database server after an extract completes? We have noticed it keeps idle connections open to Teradata for extended periods of time.

       

      In our other applications where we build our own connection strings we can specify the parameter "ConnectionPoolingTimeout=5" to reduce the amount of time an idle connection is kept open.
