You may notice that the "vizportal-grpc-request-0" log is growing excessively on Tableau Server. 


  • Tableau Server 2019.1.2
  • Windows Server 2016


Option 1

Upgrade to Tableau Server 2019.2 or a newer version. See Tableau Server Downloads and Release Notes for downloads of current and previous versions of Tableau Server. For more information on current releases, see Upgrade Tableau Server and Server Upgrade.

Option 2

As a workaround, manually delete the file as follows:
  1. Stop Tableau Server.
  2. Delete the log file vizportal-grpc-request-0.log
  3. Start Tableau Server - the log file should be automatically recreated after successful Tableau Server start.


This behavior was related to issue 866786 which was fixed in a newer version of Tableau Server.
