Checking master data loading performance of connections


When data is loaded or refreshed, the associated connections are executed in parallel by default. This is a great feature because it dramatically reduces the total loading time of the dashboard.

To check the loading state of all your connections, it is a good practice to create a custom debug mode that lets you monitor how the connections are performing.

Getting ready

Use a dashboard with multiple connections.

How to do it…

  1. Add a Spreadsheet Table component to the canvas.

  2. Set up the spreadsheet as shown in the following screenshot:

  3. Go to the Data Manager and select the Usage tab. Here you'll find a section called Load Status. For each connection, bind the Insert In field to the corresponding spreadsheet cell.

  4. Bind the Spreadsheet Table component to the spreadsheet area.

  5. Publish and Launch the dashboard and see what happens while the connections are executed.

You can use Dynamic Visibility to make the Spreadsheet Table component appear and disappear...
