So if you were formerly accessing this information programmatically, you may need to update these references.

Putting on an administrator's hat, I think there is a fair amount of information that seems interesting and valuable:  cache hit/miss counts, sql counts, # statements currently executing.  There are also a lot of questions an administrator might ask that cannot be answered yet:
> 1)  How many MDX queries have failed?  How many have been cancelled?  That's the sort of information that would be great to tie to an alerting threshold in a tool like Nagios.

> 3)  What's the breakdown of time spent executing SQL versus Mondrian execution time?  
> 4)  What MDX query generated what SQL queries?
> 5)  What is the aggregate time spent in statement execution?
