SET CALCPARALLEL

Enables parallel calculation in place of the default serial calculation.

Essbase analyzes each pass of a calculation to determine whether parallel calculation is possible. If it is not, Essbase uses serial calculation even if CALCPARALLEL is set.

Syntax

SET CALCPARALLEL n;
ParameterDescription

n

A required parameter, an integer from 1 to 64 on 32-bit platforms or from 1 to 128 on 64-bit platforms, specifying the number of threads to be made available for parallel calculation. The default value specifies serial calculation: no parallel calculation takes place. Values 1 to 64 (1 to 128 on 64-bit) specify parallel calculation with 1 to 64 (or 1 to 128) threads. Values of 0 specify serial calculation. Values less than 0 return an error. Values greater than the maximum are interpreted as the maximum (64 or 128).

Note:

Values less than 0 are treated differently than they are by the CALCPARALLEL configuration file setting.

Notes

Example

SET CALCPARALLEL 3;

Enables up to three threads to be used to perform calculation tasks at the same time.
