  • We should take care some of the key concepts to achieve overall performance

    Relational Database

    1. Proper relational database design
    2. Create star schema for better performance (dimension & facts)
    3. Table partitioning at least for facts having lot of data
    4. if you have a lot of calculations then try doing them in the relational database itself
    5. Keep data & log files on separate drives and use fastest drives for better I/O

    SSAS Multidimensional/Tabular


    1. Create Surrogate keys in dimensions
    2. Try to create natural hierarchies (so better transform your data initially)
    3. Consider only required attributes
    4. Create attribute relationships
    5. Use key/value/name column properties properly 


    1. Create Partitions 
    2. Try avoiding many small partitions in a single measure group
    3. Create aggregations though avoid too many of them
