SQL Sentry empowers you to monitor, diagnose, and optimize SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) Multidimensional and Tabular modes. With SQL 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.
SQL Sentry includes enhanced support for SSAS Tabular mode and continued support for Multidimensional mode so that you can identify and address common SSAS performance problems.
Unique insight into VertiPaq memory limits and paging policy
Top Commands view that helps you identify bottlenecks for both DAX and MDX queries
Object Memory Usage tab that helps you optimize in-memory compression of your data model
The SQL Sentry performance dashboard shows both Windows- and SSAS-specific metrics side by side for a complete view of data platform performance. Learn more about the extended support for SSAS Tabular in SQL Sentry.
SQL Sentry gives you a complete view of SSAS performance so that you can identify and address problems that have widespread impact across your data estate.
The SQL Sentry Top Commands tab shows SSAS query-level collection and any MDX, DAX, or XMLA commands that have run longer than one second. All the like queries have been rolled up and grouped together so you can see their total impact.
The SQL Sentry SSAS Usage Totals tab provides information that can be used to determine what responses to take based on activity levels. This information is divided into three different groups:
Attributes—used to see which attribute combinations are hit the most to determine if creating an aggregation would improve performance
Aggregations—shows the aggregations that are being used
Partitions—shows which partitions are being read the most
The SSAS Performance Metrics displayed by the Performance Analysis Dashboard in SentryOne BI Sentry give you valuable insight into the root cause of performance problems with SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS). With actionable information, you can save time in troubleshooting SSAS performance. Learn more.
