Alteryx Workflow Slowness

STAR1BANU
8 - Asteroid

Dear Experts,

 

My workflow size is 2 Mb however when I try to navigate or make any changes currently moving inch by inch I am not getting the Actual performance very slow, It really very tough to handle the workflows my laptop configuration is Intel i7 8th Generation with 500 GB SSD 16 GB RAM also my internet speed is around 300 MBPS.

 

I have done the disk cleanup and remove the temp files too still the performance won't change, in that 500 GB SSD I have around 250 GB,

 

Also, I have one more question If I open the power BI and Altery together will hit the laptop performance

 

Please provide any solution for this at the earliest

 

Thanks,

@STAR1BANU do you by chance have any part of your workflow that is crosstabbing data into a massive number of columns? The underlying XML in a workflow file holds the metadata of columns so I could see this potentially bloating the file size of the workflow.

Yes, I am using cross Tab, transpose and summarize too,  in that workflow however, If I try to do any changes forex, I need to update the formula and do some changes means it takes 20  to 30 seconds some times getting not responding screen also coming 

 

Please suggest the best option instead of cross Tab, transpose and summarize too.

Crosstab transpose and summarize aren't an issue on their own, but when using crosstab to make a huge number of columns, it can be beneficial to instead take the approach of instead using more rows instead of more columns and do your subsequent summarizing from there. I would suggest taking this approach on your own if possible or potentially scheduling a 30 minute call on the virtual solutions center so that an engineer can assist: https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Virtual-Solution-Center/tkb-p/vsc
