Yikes, nearly three months since I’ve updated this blog. I did have myself a nice mini-sabbatical in Spain during that time.
A few months ago I wrote about setting data slices on MOLAP partitions. Eric Jacobsen replied in the comment section stating that improvments had been made in Hot Fix 3186 and above. We installed 3200 and did see better performance.
Thanks to Eric and the guys over at MS for being on top of this stuff. I’ve found the Analysis Services team to be quite proactive in getting issues resolved.
