Unused report in Visual analytics

Hi,

 

Question here for more knowledgable people than myself. We've a lot of unused reports in our Visual Analytics site at the moment. There's 2-300 reports atm from what I can see (and we're only really live with it about 4 months) without even looking at what's in people's own folders. I'd imagine vast majority of these are unused (don't have auditing turned on yet). Before I even turn on auditing, are there any performance impacts of having so many reports in VA? Like in a year, that could be 1000 reports which seems unsustainable but just need to know.

 

Thanks

Hi there,

surely report definitions have NO impact on the performance of sas va.

As long as they are not in view or edit mode, they do not consume any performance and/or memory.

Only Some diskspace needed of cource to store the report definition.

greetings Peter

I don't think the number of VA reports will impact performance much. In my experience report performance is mainly governed by the data volumes and report complexity - number of report items, formulas, derived columns, groupings, rules etc.
