Unleash the Power of Data Analytics

BI Sentry helps you monitor and optimize SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS).

BI Sentry

BI Sentry is the complete performance monitoring, diagnosis, and optimization solution for SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS). With BI Sentry, you gain unparalleled insight into SSAS performance issues, including bottlenecks related to memory and storage systems, aggregation usage, unoptimized queries, as well as  query and processing tasks competing for the same resources.

Performance issues within SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) can have widespread impact to performance across your data platform, including SQL Server, the Windows platform, Microsoft Analytics Platform Service (APS), and other components.


As part of the SentryOne platform, BI Sentry gives a complete view of your data platform's performance, giving you the insight to answer your organization's business-critical questions.


BI Sentry gives you all this:

Performance dashboard

View real-time and historical SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) metrics for full performance insight on one screen.

Top Commands view

See details about live or historical long-running and high-impact statements with the Top Commands view. Top Commands captures and aggregates all high-impact SSAS commands (MDX, DMX, DAX, and XMLA), and displays top commands by CPU and I/O usage.

Intelligent alerting

Rich alerting features are built into BI Sentry, allowing you to build notifications that are timely and meaningful in your environment.

Environment Health Overview

Get an instant, real-time snapshot of the health status of all of your servers from a single, easy-to-view screen. A simple-to-understand score on a scale of 1-to-100 indicates the health of your environment.

Performance reporting

Save time with pre-formatted reports, which are available for any metrics BI Sentry collects, from a global level, down to individual counters.

SSAS and file cache usage

Identify data and log files quickly, and see how data flows through your disk system. View SSAS internal cache activity and disk activity (including system file cache usage), hit ratios for all cache lookup types, and cache growth/shrinkage.

Event Calendar

Use an Outlook-style calendar to view interrelated activity across your entire data platform. Track your data from ETL through reporting, and all services in between.

Desktop, web, and mobile access

Monitor your SSAS performance anytime, anywhere, with easily configurable, highly customizable cloud access to your performance metrics.
