New Trace Events in SSAS2008 R2 CU5

with 2 comments

Greg Galloway has just pointed out to me a new KB article outlining some major improvements/changes to trace events that are coming in CU5 for SSAS 2008 R2:

This represents part of the new monitoring functionality that will be coming to SSAS in Denali. These changes will allow us to:

  • Monitor what happens during the execution of the MDX Script in more detail
  • Track resource usage for individual commands (this alone is very interesting)
  • Track locks more effectively

These changes are going to be very useful to anyone running a high-end SSAS implementation.
