SSAS databases comparison tool

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

There are a lot of tools for comparing “regular” SQL databases, but I couldn’t find any tool for comparing SSAS databases or cubes. Is there one or is it just no need in such a tool among BI community?

SS Analysis Services ( SSAS ) DB schema comparison tool?

Does anyone know of a tool that compares SSAS databases? Not their data, just schema and maybe partition definitions.

Some functions are missing in SSAS calculation tool for my sql 2008 R2 installation (DAX functions?)

In relation to this post: http://connect.microsoft.com/SQLServer/feedback/details/569767/some-functions-e-g-timedate-are-blank-under-the-calculation-toolbar-others-are-ok  I understand that the AS functions are loaded from a XML schema, could a quick solution from Microsoft be to send an updated xml file? When I expand the "All" group under Functions the first 120 MDX (or DAX) functions are blank. I understand that this only a SQL Server 2008 R2 problem and that it's perhaps the DAX functions that shows up blank. // Bjorn

Missing SSAS databases

I have a virtual test server which is running SQL Server 2008 R2, on it I have 2 SSAS databases which are linked to Sharepoint Dashboards I had everything was working fine then windows updates happend, in SSMS it only sees one of the databases but it has no content, no cube, no views and is no longer working on the dashboard now the really weird thing is that the other database has vanished from the SSMS entirely but is still working on the Dashboard.
When I attempt to redeploy / process the databases I get error messages about their being errors in the metadata manager. from the error message it gives pointers to the database files and it seems that all of the objects are there.

Currently I can't reprocess either database, neither can I delete the one SSMS can see. As it is a test server it wasnt being backed up by our IT guys.

Can anyone help shed some light on what's going on here?

Toolbox: Analyze HTTP Traffic, Synchronize Databases, and More


Debugging Web applications can be a difficult process due to the logical, physical, and temporal differences between the mishmash of technologies that comprise such an application. For bugs that arise from the HTML and script received by the browser or in the transfer or request of a page's markup, developers often adopt archaic debugging techniques, such as using View Source and Notepad to scrutinize the contents received by the browser.

{ End Bracket }: Creating a Custom Metrics Tool


Metrics play an important role in our lives. Even if we don't realize it or characterize it as such, many daily activities have the potential to be quantified to some degree. So it's not surprising that metrics play an even greater role in the workplace, where there are goals and a bottom line and where much of a day's activity can be summarized in numbers.

.NET Code Tuning: Make Your Apps Fly with the New Enterprise Performance Tool


Because the common language runtime (CLR) is a black box, it's pretty hard to divine what's going on when you want to track down performance problems. Microsoft will be delivering a brand new profiler, the Enterprise Performance Tool (EPT), as part of Visual Studio 2005 Team Developer Edition that's ideal for use on a production system because it offers some very lightweight means of collecting performance data. Here John Robbins takes you on a tour.

{ End Bracket }: C# to Visual Basic Translation Tool


Having talked to thousands of developers who use the Microsoft . NET Framework, I've heard one consistent complaint: "I really wish all the samples were written in my programming language. " Nothing is more frustrating than having braved the wilds of Internet searches for a snippet of code that does exactly what you want but is written in a language you don't use.

Debugging Tool: Build a Logging and Event Viewing Library to Help Debug Your .NET Framework-based Ap


Building a basic, reusable application framework can make development quicker and easier. This allows you to focus more on the problems at hand and less on the repetitive tasks involved in building any application. In this article, the author presents a framework that provides facilities to access the registry and an extensible framework for logging messages to a console window or the Event Viewer. This reusable framework can be included as a library in your projects, allowing you to display an enhanced, color-coded message log and dynamically change logging levels.

Bug Tracker: Build a Configurable Web-Based Bug Management Tool Using ADO.NET, XML, and XSLT


One of the most significant features of ADO.NET is its integration with XML. Developers can either use an ADO-like API to access the data or work directly with an XML representation of the data. This article demonstrates how both of these techniques can be used together to create Web applications that take advantage of XML standards such as XSLT. The example presented here is a bug tracking application built using C# and the.NET Framework. The development of the application covers several topics including data access using ADO.NET, the presentation of data using XSLT stylesheets, and the integration of ADO.NET with the .NET XML Framework.
