Advanced Importing Features
When you import data into a storage, there are some advanced options you can take advantage of to optimize the speed of importing, analysis and reporting.
The Field Selection Page
This page enables you to exclude fields from being imported into your storage. The less fields you import, the smaller your storage will be and the faster your analysis and reporting will be.
The Filters Page
You can filter out unnecessary information from being importing into your storage. The less information you import into your storage, the smaller the storage will be and the faster your analysis and reporting will be. For information on configuring filters, see Filtering.
The Partitioning Page
By default, storages are partitioned (internally split up) by date. This means that if you drilldown into date, Vantage Ultimate only has to read part of the storage to retrieve that information instead of the entire storage. If the first drilldown you do is into users, you can partition your storage by users so that Vantage Ultimate only has to read the storage partition for the user you drilled down into. This can greatly increase analysis and reporting speed for specific situations.
For more information see Storage Partitioning.
