Administering SAS OLAP Servers

Deleting Cubes

Cube deletion takes place in PROC OLAP and SAS OLAP Cube Studio. If you delete cubes, that have not been updated, then the deletion operation removes cube metadata and physical files. For cubes that have undergone either in place or incremental update, the deletion of old versions and generation folders occurs programmatically. Manual file deletion is not required.

For cubes that have undergone in-place updates, the next in-place update will remove all old generation folders.

For cubes that have received incremental updates, deletion of metadata and physical files takes place as part of the coalesce process.
