Configuring the cube processing tasks

IT Analytics

This task is essential for IT Analytics Symantec Endpoint Protection Content Pack to function properly because the cubes do not contain any data until the cube processing is complete.

You can create and assign processing schedules for all installed cubes. Your business needs should dictate how often the cubes are 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 uses 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 IT Analytics Settings, and then click Processing.

  3. Set up your schedule for the default processing tasks, and then check Enabled.

    Symantec recommends that you process cubes no more than once a day, depending on the number of cubes and amount of data in your environment.

  4. Select the cubes 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 database. To monitor its progress, you can view the events in the IT Analytics Event Viewer while the manual processing task executes.
