    Swarup Malli



        I'm rookie when it comes to administering  qlikview server.


        Currently I'm working with Qlikview 11 enterprice edition.


        What are the best practises a administrator should follow ?

          Some of the best practices, I know and would like to share with fellow QVS administrators are :.


          • 1)      Never copy  qvw into root folder cos it contains  pgo files ,they are like configuration  files.
          • 2)      Everything on mounted folder.
          • 3)      Always create task groups, this will avoid confusion when you have huge number of tasks
          • 6)      Minimize the use of input fields.
          • 7)      Not a good practice to let the users add objects via access point uses up memory.
          • 8)      Not a good practice to let users download documents ( bandwidth usage)
          • 9)      Limit the number of rows in export ie if a table has 60 million rows and users exports them..ie 60 million not good, limit it to 1000 or something.
          • 10)   The share collaboration feature eats resources.
          • 11)   Put all the source qvd,include files and images in source document, maintain 1 source for 1 qvw and place qvw on the user document.
          • 12)   When you delete a qvw delete all tasks associated with it and free all the document cals associated with it.
          • 13)   QVS detector
          • 14)   QVPT
          • 15)   In qvs 11 you can do extraction from the server itself, meaning you don’t have to create a separate extraction qvw .
