DTS Service Benefit

I've sometimes wondered what the real benefits of the DTS Service aulkre--aside from managing the server storage and monitoring jobs. I just found out that the DTS Service caches the enumeration of components. Turning on the service keeps the enumerations from having to happen each time you run the package. For some people this has made orders of magnitude difference in execution speed.

Link to Unknown Member Blog

Christian Wade from Conchango has an excellent blog entry on issues relative to the Unknown Member. He makes a compelling case for handling unknown members in the ETL whenever possible, and describes an excellent way of keeping clear which fact records need to be reprocessed.
