“How can I see what data connections and files are being used?”
“How can I view reload concurrency and peak reload RAM over time?”
These are a few of the questions we frequently hear. To enable you to find better answers for those, we are happy to share with you the new Reload Analyzer for Qlik SaaS!
The Reload Analyzer will help answer those questions and more! The app provides insights on:
Number of reloads by type (Scheduled, Hub, In App, API) and by user
Data connections and used files of each app’s most recent reload
Reload concurrency and peak reload RAM
Reload tasks and their respective statuses
And much more!
The Reload Analyzer uses Qlik’s RESTful APIs to fetch all the required data and stores the history in QVD files, allowing for efficient reloads and historical analysis.
A few things to note:
This app is provided as-is and is not supported by Qlik Support.
This app leverages an undocumented API (reload-tasks) that is experimental, and relies on the users API, which is also 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.

App Version Change log:
Added the additional optional variable vu_reloads_page_size for controlling the Reloads API page size. Previously hardcoded at 100. Useful for working around "Message too large" errors.
Moved the system variables to the top of the "Main" load script tab so that they can be adjusted prior to any of the primary script executing.
Fixed incremental load issue where the Reloads table had some duplicates post incremental load.
Updated the "ReloadConcurrencyMinute" field to display all values.
Updated the "Concurrent Reloads and Peak RAM by Concurrency Minute" chart on the "Dasbhoard" sheet to have a corrected Y axis range.
Added the additional optional variable vu_audit_page_size for controlling the Audit API page size. Previously hardcoded at 100. This can help to relieve the weight on the audits API calls.
