Analysis Services Processing and CXPACKET Waits

Performance tuning - my favorite! This blog originated from a quest to reduce the processing time of an SSAS cube which loads some 2.5 billion rows and includes DISCINTCT COUNT measure groups. The initial time to fully process the cube was about 50 minutes on a dedicated DELL PowerEdge R810 server, with 256 GB RAM and two physical processors (32 cores total). Both the SSAS and database servers were underutilizing the CPU resources with SSAS about 60-70 utilizations and the database server about 20-30 CPU utilization. What was the bottleneck?
