CR: Charts with large amounts of data

Revision Date: 2005-09-19

Information:

If you define a CHARTrunner chart that will ultimately include a large amount of data, the performance can be improved by minimizing the number of columns that you "map" on the data definition tab. In other words, if you are creating a histogram from a single column of data, don't map a bunch of identifier columns. They are not displayed on the histogram AND the "identifier" mapping will slow down the processing of the data. Additionally, defining a filter like "Operator=Sam" does NOT require that you map the 'Operator' column as an identifier.
