    Is it possible to differentiate tabprotosrv processes used by extract refreshes from those initiated from workbook queries?

      I am trying to understand how our extract refreshes is affecting our Tableau Server in whole.

       

      I do understand that the backgrounders are used for extract refreshes and are monitoring those. I notice that the tabprotosrv processes are using a lot of CPU and was wondering how they are related to the extract refreshes.

      According to another post this is what tabprotosrv is doing:

       

      Tabprotosrv.exe: Interfaces between Tableau Server and database drivers, it is essentially the lowest level of interface between Tableau and the driver. It is used by Tableau for connecting to all supported data sources. It runs while refreshes are occurring and Tableau Server is connecting to the external databases.

       

      My question is -> Is it possible to differentiate tabprotosrv processes used by extract refreshes from those initiated from workbook queries?
