What You Need to Know About SSAS Processor Affinity

I've been looking into using processor affinity on our SSAS instances to help control the workload on our servers. Sometimes a process can run which will grab as much CPU resource as it can, which means that queries on the cubes cannot run, grinding the front end to a halt. Unlike the db engine, there is no resource governor for Analysis Services. Sure you can set the min/max memory simple enough, but setting limits on IO and CPU is a more complex task.
