Configure Measure Group Properties

Measures groups have properties that enable you to define how measure groups function.

Measure group properties determine behaviors for the entire measure group and set the default behaviors for certain properties of measures within a measure group.

Property

Definition

AggregationPrefix

Specifies the common prefix that is used for aggregation names.

DataAggregation

Determines whether Analysis Services can aggregate persisted data or cached data for the measure group. Default is to aggregate persisted data and cached data.

ErrorConfiguration

Configurable error handling settings for handling of duplicate keys, unknown keys, null keys, error limits, action upon error detection, and the error log file.

EstimatedRows

Specifies the estimated number of rows in the fact table.

EstimatedSize

Specifies the estimated size (in bytes) of the measure group.

ID

Specifies the identifier of the object.

IgnoreUnrelatedDimensions

Determines whether unrelated dimensions are forced to their top level when members of dimensions that are unrelated to the measure group are included in a query. Default setting is True.

ProactiveCaching

Configurable error handling settings for handling of duplicate keys, unknown keys, null keys, error limits, action upon error detection, and the error log file.

ProcessingMode

Indicates whether indexing and aggregating should occur during or after processing. Options are Regular and LazyAggregations.

ProcessingPriority

Determines the processing priority of the cube during background operations, such as lazy aggregations and indexing. The default value is 0.

StorageLocation

The file system storage location for the measure group. If none is specified, the location is inherited from the cube that contains the measure group.

StorageMode

The storage mode for the measure group. Available values are MOLAP, ROLAP, or HOLAP.
