Traffic to Data Sources
The Traffic to Data Sources view gives you the ability to see usage of data sources on your Tableau Server installation. This can help you determine which data sources are most heavily used and those that are less often used. You can filter the information you see by selecting the data source, the action taken on that data source, and the time range.
A time line at the top of the view shows you how data sources are being used over a time range you specify (the default is the last 7 days):
- What is the Total Data Source Usage by Day—This shows total data source usage by day, based on the filters you set. Hover your mouse pointer 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 the Min Interactions filter at the top of the view. 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.
