Ability to execute tools in parallel within the same workflow

Tools within a workflow needs to be able to run in parallel whereever applicable.

 

For example: Extracting 10 million rows from one source, 12 million rows from a different source to perform blending.

currently the order of execution is the order in which tools are dragged into the canvas. Hence Source1 first, Source2 second and then the JOIN.

 

Here Source1 & Source2 are completely independent, hence can be run in parallel. Thus saving the workflow execution time.

 

Execution time is quite crucial when you have tight data loading window.

 

Hopefully alteryx considers this in the next release!

Are there any updates on how the beta testing is going? Is there an estimate on when this feature will be launched to all users?

Hi @akihirokomatsu 

 

We cannot supply a date, but you can join in the new 2020.1 Beta Program here: https://betaprogram.alteryx.com/key/alteryxanalyticsbeta20201

 

As we get closer to a GA release, we will communicate which release it can be expected in.

Hi @TonyaS,

 

I requested access to the 2020.1 beta program several weeks ago and have not heard back. Is this something you can help with?

 

Thank you,

Ryan

AMP Engine went out to GA with the 2020.2 Release version. 

 

There is a checkbox to "Use AMP Engine" under the Workflow - Configuration - Runtime settings to set it for an individual workflow run.

There will also additionally be a User Setting to allow a user to build and save every new workflow with AMP Engine already enabled in a future release.

Hi @GHadush ,

What are you following up on? 

 

AMP Engine has been available in production/GA since the 2020.2 Release version.

 

Have you tried enabling AMP? 

 

We do have an ongoing Beta leading up to making AMP the default for NEW workflows with the 2022.1 Release. Let me know if you would like to be added to that, if it is easier for you to download a Beta installer to try out than it would be to upgrade if you are on an older version before 2020.2.
