SSAS Usage Totals

The SSAS Usage Totals tab provides information that can be used to determine what responses to take based on activity levels. The information is divided into three different groups:

  • Attributes—Used to see which attribute combinations are hit the most to determine if creating an aggregation would improve performance.
  • Aggregations—Shows the aggregations that are being used.
  • Partitions—Shows which partitions are being read the most.
