Parallel processing of the job types

The task processing the jobs supports parallel processing. Different type of jobs are grouped so they can be processed in parallel. The jobs with dimensions are processed first and then the jobs with cubes.

Parallel processing is handled in this order:

  • Job types are grouped as:
    • Dimension operations. For example, deleting dimensions or setting properties. Dimension operations are in groups of one, which means serially.
    • Cube operations. For example, creating or setting properties.
    • Cell operations. For example, a fact load.
  • Groups are executed in parallel in the following order:
    • Dimension
    • Cube
    • Cell

You should avoid concurrent operations on the same OLAP object. If concurrent operations are requested, place them in separate groups.
