Several aspects can impact the performance of your Kyvos cubes. Some problems could be related to raw data, some due to the poor design of the cube and related entities, and others may arise due to inefficient queries. This guide provides information about some of the best practices, which you should consider during the design and development of your Kyvos cubes. The guide also offers tips to fine-tune your existing cube designs in case of performance issues.

In addition to the best practices explained in this guide, refer to the Kyvos Properties Guide to know more about the advanced properties that you can use for designing cubes to optimize query performance and reduce cube build time.

Before you begin

As a cube designer, you should be familiar with processes and understand the Kyvos functionality. This document is an add-on to the Kyvos User Guide. Before starting with the best practices, we recommend you go through the Kyvos User Guide to understand how the tool works.

You must have a thorough understanding of your use case before starting the design process. To keep your design optimized for cube building and querying performance, analyze the following characteristics of your use case, and design the cubes accordingly.
