BUG #: 7709(plato7x)
Expand all | Collapse all


OLAP Server does not always use aggregations (even when they exist) on a multi-partitioned cube. Instead, OLAP Server sends SQL queries to the fact level records. This behavior is noticed when queries refer to data across more than one partition. The effect of this behavior is reduced query performance when the cube contains more than one partition and queries refer to data from more than one partition.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SQL Server OLAP Services version 7.0. This problem has been corrected in U.S. Service Pack 3 for Microsoft SQL Server OLAP Services version 7.0. For more information, contact your primary support provider.
