MDX Calculations Part 3 – Subcube Vectors, Solve Order, Block vs Cell By Cell Computation

Understanding Block vs Cell By Cell Computation The key idea behind subspace computation is best introduced by contrasting it with a cell-by-cell evaluation of a calculation. (This is also known as a naïve calculation.) Consider a trivial calculation RollingSum that sums

Optimizing Bitmap Indexes during Partition Processing in SSAS Multidimensional

When MDX query is issued on SSAS Server it goes through Formula Engine which request data from Storage Engine, and it either retrieves data either from cache or aggregations or from partition/fact data files (see this article for Understanding MDX

Understanding Partition(Fact) Processing in SSAS Multidimensional

In Analysis Services, when we first DEPLOY a database it contains only objects but not data. When we PROCESS a database, it directs the server to recursively process those objects that store data in the model, such as dimensions(see Understanding Dimension Processing in SSAS
