PASS_17_SpeakingSmall_250x250-AHere is my session:

Build a performance monitoring toolset for SSAS using PowerBI

Have you ever wanted to monitor the performance of a SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) server but did not want to create a tool from scratch and your company did not allow you to purchase one of the few commercial tools available?

Join me in this session as I show you how to use Windows Perfmon, SQL Server Extended Events, SSAS Tabular and Power BI Desktop to build a performance monitoring tool for a SSAS server.

We will start by reviewing some of the SSAS performance metrics you can collect. Then we will learn how to use Windows Perfmon and SQL Server Extended Events to collect performance counters and query execution information from a server and store it in a SQL Server database. Next we will use SSAS to build a Tabular model from the information collected. Finally, we will use Power BI Desktop to present this information.
