Question

I am receiving a message saying my cube is at 95% capacity and will not display when the limit is reached. What is the maximum size for cube sheets and can this limit be increased?

Answer

Cube sheets may contain up to 5 GB of data and will not display once they exceed this size.The 5 GB maximum is calculated per version, meaning that in each version, the cube can contain up to 5 GB of data (e.g. Actuals can have 5 GB and 2019 Forecast can have 5 GB). Additional increases would require further review by the Support team.

How do I find what capacity my cube sheet is at?

Modeling > Sheet > Edit Cube Sheet
  • You will see a percentage at the top of the screen if the cube is above 50% capacity.  The % of capacity is how close you are to hitting the 5 GB (in one or more versions).
  • If you do not see a percentage indicated at the top of the screen or a warning message, then the cube is less than 50% capacity.
  • If the cube exceeds 5 GB, a warning will read: “This cube sheet has too much data to display in one or more versions."
  • When viewing the cube sheet you will also see a warning: "This sheet has too much data to display."

Here are a few options to reducing the amount of data in the cube sheet:

  • Reducing the number of years in the version.

  • Reducing the number of accounts or dimensions available on the cube.

  • Splitting the cube into two smaller cube sheets.
