processing question? how do you know what to process? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a good article or a simple set of rules for processing items within a cube?

    some of my questions are:

    1. when can I just process a dimension?

    2. when do i need to process the measure groups?

    3. when do i need to reprocess the entire thing?

    4. when do i need to do a deploy only?

    While in development of a large cube I would like to eliminate reprocessing the entire thing if I dont really need to, but I would like to understand what forces each item to need to be rebuilt. Like if I add an attribute to a dimension, can I just rebuild that dimension or does that require a rebuild of the measure groups too?
