The Parallel option is useful for speeding up processing. Creates a new writeback table and causes the process to fail if one already exists. Creates a new writeback table even if one already exists. For example, partitions are dependent on the dimensions that determine aggregation, but dimensions are not dependent on partitions. For example, if the processing job contains only dimensions, Analysis Services processes just those objects explicitly identified in the job.

If this option is applied to a mining structure, it populates the mining structure with source data.The difference between this option and the Process Full option is that this option does not iterate the processing down to the mining models themselves. This setting causes Analysis Services to fork off processing tasks to run in parallel inside a single transaction.If the cube is unprocessed, Analysis Services will process, if it is necessary, all the cube's dimensions.After that, Analysis Services will create only cube definitions.This kind of processing is required when a structural change has been made to an object, for example, when an attribute hierarchy is added, deleted, or renamed.

For dimensions, adds new members and updates dimension attribute captions and descriptions.

APPLIES TO: SQL Server Analysis Services Azure Analysis Services When you process objects in Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services, you can select a processing option to control the type of processing that occurs for each object.

Processing types differ from one object to another, and by changes that have occurred to the object since it was last processed.

Processes an Analysis Services object and all the objects that it contains.

When Process Full is executed against an object that has already been processed, Analysis Services drops all data in the object, and then processes the object.

Some processing settings are primarily used for batch processing jobs.
