I created a Tableau data extract with a 60gb of data...not small. When I connect to that TDE I still have a live vs extract option.
Maybe a dumb question.....
Do I always do a live connection to a TDE?
I'm not sure which delivers better performance but logically it would be a live connection since the .tde will already be optimized by the original process that created it.
But if you are dealing with 60gb of data, why not connect directly to the database ?
