Configuring the cube processing tasks

You can create and assign processing schedules for all installed cubes. Your business needs to dictate how often the cubes should be processed. For a typical configuration, all cubes should be processed daily.

Multiple processing tasks can be used for more granular control of cube processing. More than one cube can share a dimension. In this case, the last processed date of all cubes that use that dimension updates to the last processed date of the shared dimensions. However, the actual data in the cubes is not processed until a processing task is run that is configured to process that specific cube.

To configure the cube processing tasks

  1. In the Symantec Management Console, on the Settings menu, click Notification Server > IT Analytics Settings.

  2. In the left pane, expand the Processing folders.

  3. Select the schedule that you want for the default processing tasks, and then click Enable Schedule.

  4. Check the box for each available cube that you want to be processed on the current schedule.

    For a typical configuration, select all cubes.

  5. Click Save Changes and confirm that the Default Processing Task is saved.

  6. Click Run Now.

    The selected processing tasks start asynchronously, which means that the task does not finish by the time that the page refreshes. This task can take several minutes to execute. The execution time depends on the number of the cubes that are selected and the size of data within the CMDB. You can monitor its progress by viewing the events in the Event Viewer window while the manual processing task executes.

    This task is essential for the solution to function properly because the cubes do not contain any data until the process completes.
