After creating cubes, measures, and dimensions, you map the dimensions and . schema following the instructions in Installing the Oracle OLAP 11g Sample. I realize you asked this in August , but in case it still helps you or others, as of Feb , SQL Developer has an OLAP extension which seems to be what. In this course, students learn to progressively build an OLAP data model to support Students learn to design OLAP cubes to serve as a summary management.

Remote Emergency Support provided by Conversational. It built my cube as compressed, partitioned by quarter and pre-aggregation settings of 0 for the top partition and 35 for the bottom partition. Creating this metadata is out of scope of this article, but for more details, take a look at the white paper “Migrating Express Applications To Oracle 9i” Happily however, this entire process is made considerably easier with Oracle 10g.

Oracle decided in the late ‘s that in-database analytics was the way to go, and one of the major engineering projects undertaken was to take all the benefits of multidimensional data types and multidimensional data processing and calculation from the best multidimensional databases, and push it into the kernal of Oracle Database.

As partitioning takes a bit of judgement and it’s always obvious when you first use it, these choices sum it up pretty well and will help new developers make some intelligent choices.

Oracle OLAP: Creating Cubes with Simple SQL

The recommendation is interesting though – first of all,not using compression would stop me using materialized views, which would be a shame, but I wonder why it didn’t recommend using compression in the first place – the data is sparse it’s sales performance data, which is usually sparse, as compared to accounts type data, which is usually dense and there’s usually little downside at all to using compression, even if your data is fairly dense.

The fact was, that for dimensional data, the best multidimensional databases could deliver faster and better query and analysis than the relational databases of the day. On this tab, you can enable the cube for MV refresh, set the refresh method and refresh mode, and also enable it for query rewrite, so that the analytic workspace is considered when queries come in against the source tables used to populate it.

The only impact on the application is that the queries are faster. The most powerful, open Analytic Engine. Again, not sure how it came to this conclusion, presumably it’s down to the numbers of dimension members in each of the hierarchy levels, as the actual cube data hasn’t been read in yet.


Analytic Workspaces are multidimensional workspaces held within LOBs in Oracle tables, that store data using a technology originally introduced with Oracle’s Express line of products. To create materialized views: Thanks for the article.

Oracle OLAP

I have worked at Oracle for 17 years working on a wide variety of data warehouse projects both as a consultant and an onsite support engineer. A single dimension could contain multiple hierarchies and the database could contain multiple dimensions, unique within each schema. The builcing on the dialog reads: This Oracle documentation was created as a support and Oracle training reference for use by our DBA performance tuning consulting professionals.

This seems similar in function to the Calculation Plans feature in AWM10g, a fefature that most people didn’t really know about but that gets used to run custom aggregation scripts, allocations, forecasts and so on.

I decide to go for the Time Dimension partitioning option, let the advisor drop and recreate the cube partitioning creates lots of individual variables in the AW, one for each partition, rather than the single one that there previously was for UNITS, which requires a drop and rebuild of the variableand then move on to the Storage Advisor, which is where I make the decision about cube or more properly, dimension sparsity.

Also, unlike relational OLAP cubes, multidimensional OLAP Option cubes are usually “fully solved,” with all aggregations computed at load time, giving cubee faster, more predictable response time for users’ queries. Happily however, this entire process is made considerably easier with Oracle 10g. This will occur when data from older time periods is commonly updated and when other dimensions commonly changed with new members or updated hierarchies” That’s pretty good actually. The first product of that category long before the term “OLAP” was coined in the ‘s was an early iteration of bui,ding was to become Oracle Express.

Firstly, with Oracle 8i, you could create basic relational OLAP dimensions, which were used by the query rewrite and materialized view mechanisms to make summary management more effective.

In addition, dimensions help the Oracle 8i summary adviser to recommend materialized views, as the dimension and it’s hierarchies define how data ‘rolls up’ when aggregates are required. Pressing this brings up the following dialog Cuhes message on the dialog reads: I choose the Time Dimension option, whereapon the disk whirs a bit and comes up with the following recommendation:.

To create a simple cube that has one measure and uses our one dimension, first of all create a table to contain the measure. Here’s the product dimension one:. Part of the confusion is due to the way that OLAP has developed within the Oracle database over the years, buildinh therefore it’s probably a good idea to take a bit of a history lesson.


A First Look at Oracle OLAP 11g

Im new to oracle multidimensional models I want to create dimensions and cubes from that data. It’s recommending that I don’t use compression. So what we’ve shown here is several things.

Oracle technology is changing and we strive to update our BC Oracle support information. If I take a look down at the materialized view section though, I can see MVs for the dimensions, but not for the cube. This tutorial use sql developer data modeler. Dimension must have one or more levels so that rules out parent-child dimensions then Cube must be compressed why? Do I need to create separate dimension and fact tables from that relational data, or do I just use the tables from the relational tables??

Invalid materialized view name” Do you have any idea? In my experience, when you come to aggregate a cube, you don’t really think “what percentage of the cube shall I aggregate”, you really think “how much time shall I allocate to the cube build”, or “how much disk space should I allocate” – if we could aggregate based on the likely amount of disk space a cube will take up something Discoverer Administrator used to do, with it’s Summary Advisor, and Enteprise Manager does I think when recommending MVs to create this would be even more useful.

I go back to AWM first though, build the cube again, which works ok and I see from SQL Developer that a materialized view has been created for the cube. Feel free to ask questions on our Oracle forum.

The hierarchies are as follows: In this new release, you can pre-aggregate the capstone levels, which is certainly interesting and potentially gives us the ability to make our cube partitioning very granular, the benefit of this being that we can isolate cube refreshes and recalculations to just those very granular partitions that have changed something that’s buildung more beneficial, at least in 10g, when you’re using compressed composites.

This program will 1 create an analytic workspace, buliding create OLAP dimensions from the SQL dimensions, 3 create a cube from the table-based materialized view and 4 create a cube-organized materialized view on the cube to enable query rewrite into the cube.
