Tableau Services Manager (TSM) is the comprehensive tool for installing and managing Tableau Server. It contains an enhanced user experience with both a command-line interface (CLI) and a web interface for server administrators.
TSM includes a new distributed architecture that addresses key customer pain points such as eliminating the need for a dedicated backup primary machine. It also adds the ability to dynamically add/remove certain server processes without restarting server. Some of TSM's benefits:
- Tableau Services Manager (TSM) replaces multiple tools from previous versions of Tableau Server
- Flexibility & Ease of Automation
- No more primary + worker(s)
- Hot Topology
- Faster Upgrades
