When MSTR executes an R analytic, where is the processing handled? Is it done by the system the iServer is on or the local workstation?

Also, can the execution be offloaded to server/secondary server specifically designed to handle that processing?

Hi ativ,

R Analytics are processed on the MicroStrategy Intelligence Server, with two exceptions: R Analytics are executed on the MicroStrategy Desktop client when using derived metrics in three-tier or when running two-tier. At this time, the R analytic execution cannot be offloaded to another server.

BTW, this information is covered in the R Integration Pack User Guide (bottom of page 3 and top of page 4). This document can also be found on the Documentation tab.

Thanks and good luck,
