Pulse Model Spotlight

In Model Spotlight, you have an overview of your TM1 application:

  • Configuration settings such as configuration paths, Port number…

  • You can see the number of changes by author and by day during the past 14 days.

  • You can see the cubes, dimensions, processes, etc.

  • You can enter information for each of your TM1 objects describing how they are used and any other valuable information.

Each time the documentation runs, Pulse stores the cube statistics, you can then analyze and check when a specific metric increased. For example if the feeders increased, you could check the change tracking on this date to understand which code line is responsible for this increase.
