What is the solution when SAS reports or Dashboards performs slow in SAS Visual Analytics?

Meteorite | Level 14



For the community to assist you with your question we need to understand your environment. Also have you searched in the community to see other performance related discussions before posting your question?


Some things to consider, provide details on your situation:

  • What do you define as slow?
  • What benchmarking have you done. What were you experiencing and what are you experiencing now? What are the response times etc?
  • Do you experience this for a particular report or for all reports?
  • Has anything changed? Server load increase, number of users onboarded? More reports added? More data loaded into memory?
  • What version of SAS Visual Analytics are using?
  • Is this on the mobile client or browser? What browser are you experiencing this on? What browsers have your tried - do you get any differences? 
  • What viewer are you using - classic or modern? If using classic - what version of flash do you have installed?


Your question is rather broad and there are many reasons for "slowness". Some self-diagnosis and benchmarking would be a good first step and to report your findings for guidance/suggestions.
