Tableau Server Resource Limits Manager

This process was introduced in Tableau Server 2022.1.

The Tableau Server Resource Limits Manager tracks backgrounder resource usage in relation to the set resource limits to make sure the resource limits are applied correctly.


Resource Limits Manager

StatusStatus of the Resource Limits Manager is visible only in TSM CLI.

Logs generated by the Resource Limits Manager are located in C:\ProgramData\Tableau\Tableau Server\data\tabsvc\logs\allegro.

  • The configuration logs are included in the Backgrounder logs.
  • The resource consumptions logs are included in the vizportal logs.

For more information, see Tableau Server Logs and Log File Locations

The Resource Limits Manager is automatically and by default installed on the initial node of Tableau Server. We do not recommend adding more processes or configuring this on additional nodes of the Tableau Server.

The maximum memory usage is set to 512 MB.

What happens when the Resource Limits Manager fails?

The resource limits will no longer be applied but the jobs will continue to run using the available Backgrounder resources. The behaviour will be similar to the scenario where there are no set resource limits.

You can see the status using the tsm command - tsm status -v
