Tableau Server Home Page Taking Longer than Expected to Load

Issue

Start page of Tableau Server taking a long time to load, specifically the Views or Workbook list
 

Environment

Tableau Server

Resolution

The "Views" list is the default start page for Tableau Server.  If many  views are published, this could take on the order of 20 seconds to load or more.  One resolution is to set a different start page with less items in the list, such as:
  • Recently used
  • Favorites
  • Project
  • A particular view

Additionally, rebuilding the search index in Tableau Server or defragmenting the disk drive could help with performance in this area as well.
 

Cause

Having many views published to Tableau Server can cause slow load times for the "Views" list, which will list all views available to the user.
