Optimizing Aggregator Transformations

Optimizing Aggregator Transformations

Aggregator transformations often slow performance because they must group data before processing it. Aggregator transformations need additional memory to hold intermediate group results.
Use the following guidelines to optimize the performance of an Aggregator transformation:
  • Group by simple columns.
  • Use sorted input.
  • Use incremental aggregation.
  • Filter data before you aggregate it.
  • Limit port connections.
