Traffic to Bridge Connected Data Sources
The Traffic to Bridge Connected Data Sources admin view gives the site admin the ability to see usage of data sources with live connections. This view can help you determine which data sources are most heavily used and those that are used less often. You can filter the information you see by selecting the Bridge client name, data source, and the time range.
This view gives you a snapshot of Tableau Cloud activity over the past 30 days.
The top of the view shows you how data sources are being used over the Time Range you specify (the default is the last 7 days):
- What is the Data Source Usage by Project—this shows total data source usage by project, based on the filters you set. Hover over a mark to see the number of times a data source was used. Select the mark to update the other sections of the view based on your selection.
- What is the Total Data Source Usage by Day—this shows total data source usage by day, based on the filters you set. Hover over a point on the line to see the count. Select the point to update the other sections of the view based on your selection.
Two bar graphs at the bottom of the view show results that are filtered by Min Interactions. These show you which data sources are most used, and who uses data sources most often. Only those data sources and users with interaction counts greater than or equal to the minimum interactions value are displayed:
- What Data Sources are Used Most—this is a list of the most used data sources. Like the other sections of the view, the information is limited by filters and any selection you make.
- Who Uses Data Sources Most Often—this shows the users who most often use the data sources. This is impacted by filters and any selection you make.
