1778638 - Important facts concerning the compression of InfoCubes


You have started a compression job for one or more requests of an InfoCube. The runtime takes more time than expected and you are unsure about the impact to other BW processes.

In general such problems cannot be rated with priority Very High. The reason is that a running compression job does not disturb other BW processes (database dependent) such as data loads or query execution. The intention of this KBA is to provide an overview on how to deal with such long runners.
