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

I am happy to introduce our App Analyzer for Qlik Cloud, that can help answer these 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.
  • It is recommended to always use the latest app.
  • Information is not collected by Qlik when using this app.
Check out Optimizing Qlik Sense SaaS Apps with App Analyzer for an in-depth dive into the App Analyzer.

 

The app as well as the configuration guide are available via GitHub, linked below. 

 

Any issues or enhancement requests should be opened on the Issues page within the app’s GitHub repository.

@Levi_Turner 

Thanks for your quick response.

The script you gave me works as intended, which I greatly appreciate.

I had to make 2 tiny changes to make sure it runs without errors, if you could edit your post to ensure anyone else looking for the same solution can use it straight away:

The address needs to be between " " in the SQL statements to indicate that it's a URL and not part of the query. There are two URLs where " " needs to be added.

Thank you for your help!

Thanks @Levi_Turner , very useful script.

I tested it on a tenant with Expanded apps and I found the space with the expanded apps flag turned on.
Can I assume that the script detects non-standard spaces (both dedicated capacity and expanded apps)?

When executing this app we have a small number of apps for which there is no owner populating.

Appreciate this useful application. Is there a way to get app objects into the data as well? Would like to be able to identify field usage as in field A is used 4 times in these objects. Field b is not used (so it could be dropped).

@jackm75 That is not possible with this app, no, as that requires engine calls and this app acts over REST. That said, you can use the "Field Usage Automation" which is a Qlik Application Automation template. Find out more here: https://github.com/eapowertools/qlik-field-usage-automation and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xS7KmAjboWk .
