Performance Testing for Tableau Dashboards

With Performance Testing you drive load to your Tableau Server and assess response time and availability. Furthermore, you define SLA’s (Service Level Agreements) with multiple goals such as Performance GoalAvailability Goal or Apdex Score.

Testing with up to 100 concurrent clients generating load on your Tableau Server. Focusing on specific dashboards to keep performance in check or include a number of dashboards in the Performance Test to get an overall picture of the performance of the Tableau Server.

Kinesis CI measures the Apdex score when running the Performance Test and compares it to the Apdex score you set based on your requirements to determine passing or failure. You flexibly set your Response Time and Availability Goal for each of the tests based on your users’ requirements. Apdex is then calculated based on the below formula and gives a number between 0 and 1, where 1 is the best outcome
