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…
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.
