Configure Measure Group Properties

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

Measure Group Properties

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 Applies to ROLAP storage. Assigns a common prefix to the indexed views in SQL Server, used to store aggregations for the partitions associated with this measure group.
DataAggregation This property is reserved for future use and currently has no effect. Therefore, it is recommended that you do not modify this setting.
Description You can use this property to document the measure group.
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. See Error Configuration for Cube, Partition, and Dimension Processing (SSAS - Multidimensional).
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.
Name Name of the measure. This property is read-only.
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. LazyAggregations can be used to run aggregation as a background task.
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.
Type Specifies the type of the measure group.
