Designer is slow when using In-DB. It should keep the first connection alive.

Alteryx Designer is slow when using In-DB tools.


We use Alteryx 2019.1 on Hive/HortonWords with the Simba ODBC Driver configured with SSL enabled.


Here is a compare In-DB / in Memory : 




We found that Alteryx open a new connection for each action : 

- First link to joiner = 1 connection.

- Second ling to joiner = 1 connection.

- Click on the canevas = 1 connection.


Each connection take about 2,5 sec... It really slow down the Designer : 




Please, keep alive the first connection instead of closing it and creating a new one for each action on the Designer.

Thank all for bringing this to our attention. This is an issue with the product, rather than idea, and doesn't receive the attention that it needs because ideas don't go through the same process as product issues. We've made the Support and Product teams aware of this issue and they are investigating further. Moving forward, please post product issues within the product's respective discussion forum or open a support case. Thanks!
