Cluster Profiles Tab (Mining Model Viewer View)

Use the Cluster Profiles tab for an overall view of the clusters that the mining model discovers. The tab displays each attribute, together with the distribution of the attribute in each cluster.

Mining Model

Choose a mining model to view that is contained in the current mining structure. The mining model will open in its associated viewer.


Choose a viewer to use to view the selected mining model. This list includes the viewers that Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services provides for each mining model, the Microsoft Mining Content Viewer, and any plug-in viewers.

Show Legend

Include the States column in the viewer.

Histogram Bars

Select how many states to include in the histogram. If more bars exist than you choose to display, the bars of highest probability are retained, and the remaining bars are grouped together into Other.


Lists the mining model columns that are contained within the clustering model, and how they are distributed among the clusters that the algorithm identifies.


(Optional.) Describes what each color in the corresponding row of clusters represents. Add or remove by using the Show Legend check box.

Cluster Profiles

Display a column for each cluster in the model that contains each attribute, together with the distribution of the attribute in each cluster. Also displays a Population column, displaying the distribution of the attribute across the whole dataset.
