Previously, I tested the performance of a load script while using RecNo() and RowNo() functions. This conveniently gave me a script which consumes up to 25GB of RAM, along with considerable CPU power.
So, what about testing it on two cloud boxes? I’ve chosen a machine from both AWS and Azure, loaded them with Qlik Sense September 2018 and run the load script.
The summary: The AWS box was approx 8% faster than the Azure box.
