Optimize tabular cube by using SummarizeColumns()

Hi,

 

I have few measures which took a lot of time to load when report refresh takes place which have data source is cube connected through direct query,so could I create a calculate table in tabular cube by using summarizecolumns() and then pick columns from this calculate table for measures?

 

Would this improve performance?

 

Thanks

Hi @jatneerjat,

Based on my research, when you are using the DirectQuery mode, your report performance depends largely on the performance of the underlying data source:

Reference:https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/power-bi-reports-performance#directquery-and-live-connecti...

And the SUMMARIZECOLUMNS Function could return a summary table over a set of groups, so I think it could help you to improve your performence.
