Hi there. I'm testing a couple of pages we have. .NET Framework v1.1. And after a lot of response.write, I found out that there is almost 1 second o time waste in the OLAP connection. it seems they are not pooled like SQL connections. actually they seem to be pooled, but only in the SAME execution cycle of the same page. I mean, two connection in a row in the same page, the second is fast. But, if a postback occurs, the first connection is again slow (and the second fast). this is more o less the relevent code. Dim cn As New ADODB.Connection() Dim rd As New ADODB.Recordset() cn.ConnectionString = ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings("DefaultConnection") cn.Open("", "sa", "") rd.Open(array, cn) While Not rd.EOF ???? ???? rd.MoveNext() End While rd.Close() cn.Close() cn = Nothing rd = Nothing the conenction string is like this : <add key="DefaultConnection" value="Provider=MSOLAP;Data Source=SERVER;Initial Catalog=CUBEDB"/> and I've tried also with MSOLAP.2 <add key="DefaultConnection" value="Provider=MSOLAP.2;Data Source=SERVER;Initial Catalog=CUBEDB"/> OLAP server and cliente are running Analisys Services 2k SP3. Any indeas as how enable CUBE connection pooling? some trick in the connection string? some registry trick? Thanx.
