Hello Qlik Users!

How can I track app RAM usage over time?
 
How do I optimize my applications so that they can stay under the limit?
 

These are a couple of the questions we frequently hear. There hasn’t been a clear way to get a holistic picture of what is happening within your tenant…

Until now.

I am happy to share with you the new App Analyzer for Qlik SaaS!

The App Analyzer will help answer those questions and more! The app provides insights on:

  • App, Table and Field memory footprints
  • Synthetic keys and island tables to help improve app development
  • Threshold analysis for fields, tables, rows and more
  • Reload times and peak RAM utilization by app
  • And much more!

The App Analyzer uses a single REST connection to iterate over application metadata endpoints within a tenant. The data retrieve can then be measured against tenant quotas and user-defined thresholds to empower Admins to act on the insights that the app reveals. To see the app in action, check out this demo:

A few things to note:

  • This app is provided as-is and is not supported by Qlik Support.
  • An undocumented API was used in the document script that is experimental.
  • It is recommended to always use the latest app.
  • Information is not collected by Qlik when using this app.

 

The app as well as the configuration guide can be found at the bottom of this post. This app was created internally and will be supported by the developers of the app. They will be following this thread so be sure to post any questions or issues here so they can be addressed.

@Thomas_Hopp will this include information on who is using analyser capacity licenses and which apps they're using? Currently finding out info re analyser capacity usage in SaaS is not possible. I can find out how many minutes have been consumed in total, but not by who, when or which apps... 

(The scenario is to find out users who are high analyser capacity users to move over to a named analyser user)

Hi @Carl_Hunter the Analyser Capacity and consumption use cases in general are at the top of the list to support them as well within our monitoring capabilities. We are working on it as we speak and you will see updates about this as soon as possible. Regards, Thomas

Hi @Thomas_Hopp has there been any progress with the Analyser Capacity monitoring? And as well as for the Analyser licenses, anything for monitoring users events in an app, e.g. which apps are being used and when? Regards, Justin

just adding a statement to the thread here, we are still on track for May and what we are planning to deliver is a new set of API's which will allow you to gather all the data needed to answer all these questions about who is using Analyzer Capacity and which Apps, etc. And at the same time where we are planning to deliver this via the API's, we are working on an App to expose this data. Later on we do have it planned to include this more into the natural user experience of an admin, which would mean more embedded into the product.

I'll keep you guys updated about the status.

Best regards,

Thomas
