Multiplication then sum : how optimize ?

Oct 15, 2014 at 7:23 AM
I create a calculated member like this : [Mesures].[Codes Mesures].[CA]
         descendants([Organigramme].[Codes Organigramme].currentmember,,LEAVES)
         ,descendants([Projets-Récurrents].[Codes Projets-Récurrents].currentmember,,LEAVES)
         ,descendants([Axe Analytique].[Codes Axe Analytique].currentmember,,LEAVES)
         ,descendants([Sites].[Codes Sites].currentmember,,LEAVES)
         ,descendants([Temps].[Hiérarchie Temps].currentmember,,LEAVES)
         ,descendants([Versions].[Codes Versions].currentmember,,LEAVES)
         ,descendants([Effectifs].[Codes Effectifs].currentmember,,LEAVES)
         ,descendants([Investissements].[Codes Investissements].currentmember,,LEAVES)
         ,descendants([Rubriques].[Codes Rubriques].currentmember,,LEAVES)
         ,descendants([Tiers].[Codes Tiers].currentmember,,LEAVES)
   [Mesures].[Codes Mesures].&[Tarif] * [Mesures].[Codes Mesures].&[Quantité]

I want to mlultiply a quantity with a price at low level and then do the agregation with sum on the hierarchy.
The formula seems OK but because of volumetry, I have to kill the excution.
I try a similar formula on a small basis and all is ok.

Do you know if I can optimize it ?
Thanks of lot for your help

Is that calculation truly calculating at the lowest grain? If so, I would highly recommend you talk to your SSAS developer and get them to add a new measure. Do the multiplication in T-SQL (in a view or in the DMV) before SSAS sees it. That's really the only approach that will perform like you want.

OK, thank for the advice.
Calculations are today already achieved with the SQL Server database. But processing times are also quite long (10 min). We were looking for a workaround for a calculation on the fly.
