Metadata of Metrics


I am looking for metadata for metric store, like which tables&columns are populated at system level(metric store) when a new metrics is added from Metrics studio


The metric store is like the content store a black box.

the metric store has a staging area and the “system” tables. The staging tables are well documented, but not the system tables.

staging info an be found here for example:

Thanks ,

I am wondering will the staging file layout is 1-1 with staging tables(internal or system tables) of Cognos.


the saging table layout is the exactly same, because the bcp (bulk load copy) functionallity is used from the database. This requires the same layout.
