nVision Performance Tuning: Introduction

This blog post is the first in a series that discusses how to get good performance from nVision as used in General Ledger reporting.

PS/nVision is a PeopleTools technology that extracts data from the database and places it in an Excel spreadsheet (see PS/nVision Overview).  Although PS/nVision can be used with any PeopleSoft product, it is most commonly used in Financials General Ledger.

The SQL queries generated by nVision are, at least conceptually, similar to data warehouse queries. The ledger, ledger budget or summary ledger tables are the fact tables.
