Analysis Views of the BW Workload Monitor


An analysis view is a particular aspect of the workload. Depending on which aspects of the workload you are interested in, you can display different portions of the workload, organized by different aggregation levels and sort criteria.


To activate a particular analysis view, double-click the desired view in the Analysis Views subwindow.


The following analysis views are available:

Analysis View



Workload distribution in reporting; in this analysis view, the following detail views are available: Workload Overview, Query Runtimes, Hitlists, and User Profile

    Workload Overview

    Query Runtimes

You can control the relevant query statistics for each front end separately with the same aggregation and navigation options.

 Load Data

Unlike the standard workload monitor, the data is up-to-date and selected at runtime from BW-specific tables. If you require longer analysis periods or analysis periods that have already passed, select these variably (see Displaying the Last Minutes’ Load).
