  29. 29.  29  Performance Guideline Every server environment is unique, and there are many variables that can impact performance. Variables affecting performance include:  Hardware details, such as disk speed, memory, and processor cores  The number of servers in your deployment  Network traffic  Usage factors such as workbook complexity, concurrent user activity, and data caching  Tableau Server configuration settings, such as how many of each server process you’re running  Data considerations—such as data volume, database type, and database configuration. https://onlinehelp.tableau.com/current/server/en-us/perf.htm http://kb.tableau.com/articles/knowledgebase/optimizing-tableau-server- performance?lang=en-us

  31. 31.  31  Tabadmin & Tabcmd Tabadmin You can perform certain administrative tasks and change Tableau Server configuration settings using the tabadmin command line tool. It installs with Tableau Server by default https://onlinehelp.tableau.com/current/server/en-us/reconfig_tabadmin.htm http://bnreddybi.blogspot.in/2015/08/configure-with-tabadmin-set-options.html Tabcmd The tabcmd utility is one of the two command line tools that installs with Tableau Server (the other is tabadmin). The commands provided through tabcmd can help you automate common tasks, such as publishing workbooks in batches and administering users and groups. The tabcmd utility installs in the Tableau Server bin folder (C:Program FilesTableau Server9.3bin), but you can install and run tabcmd on another machine as well. https://onlinehelp.tableau.com/current/server/en- us/help.htm#tabcmd.htm%3FTocPath%3DCommand%2520Line%2520Utilities%7Ctabcmd% 7C_____0
