Observasaurus: Accelerate

Acceleration is the process of materializing a Dataset and making it ready to query, for use in Worksheets, Dashboards, and Monitors. In Observe, a Dataset should be accelerated before it is used. Acceleration increases search performance by proactively executing transforms and saving the results. This process is managed automatically by Observe.

A dataset may be accelerated if the OPAL used in its definition is streamable. If a dataset cannot be accelerated, the transforms are applied to the underlying parent dataset each time it is queried.
