Thanks Saurabh for sharing this. Resulting from the value range: When the read access to the partitioning characteristic is limited, a number of partitions may be possibly excluded from the read process, so the data base will be smaller and comprehensive data will be found and read significantly faster.

But I have jnfocube quetion: When the number of partitions is low, the user will not experience trouble from this direction at the beginning. The following is the first screen that you get when you create SPO based on a cube: This separation improves system performance when you analyze data delete data from the InfoProvider.

This has also been taken up towards the end of the document. When you activate the InfoProvider, the system creates the table on the database with one of the number of partitions corresponding to the value range.

Database tables of InfoCubes often contain several million records, so database operations of any nature are time-consuming for these tables. On the F table, every partition must be accessed for every query because there is no effective restriction on the P-dimension partitioning key on partjtioning F facttable, and due to load performance the indexes on the F table are all local indexes.
