Benefits of Using Database-Based History List Storage

  • Access additional information about each History List message, such as message and job execution statistics. As a result, you can effectively monitor and manage the History List based on its actual usage by the users.
  • The database backing of the History List provides greater scalability and improved performance. Instead of accessing a multitude of large files that usually reside on the server machine, you retrieve users’ inbox information from a database.
  • When the administrative task to delete History List messages is triggered, it creates only one session on the Intelligence Server rather than multiple separate sessions for each user.
  • Use the History List Messages monitor to monitor and manage messages for each MicroStrategy user.
