SSAS Cube Lifespan

SSAS Cube Lifespan

SSAS Cube Lifespan

I am a relatively newbie to SSAS although I am an experienced SQL programmer.

My question is about CUBE's.  What is the lifespan of a cube?

i.e., I have a CUBE with a datasource to a SQL table that is updated nightly.  How/when does the associated CUBE get updated?  Does the user have to "Reconnect" or "Refresh" the CUBE to see the new data, or is there an automated way to update a CUBE when it's host table on the SQL side is updated?


Stay Cool Ya'll!    smile2

RE: SSAS Cube Lifespan

It's called cube processing.  You schedule processing events.  This can be to process an entire SSAS database, one or more dimensions, one or more cubes, one or more partitions of a measure group, etc.

There is also proactive caching, which I have never used, and I don't know anyone personally who has.
