How to measure a visual's memory to load

Hi Folks,


How can i find out how much memory it takes for a visual to load? It works on my pc but not on the website. I cannot make the measures any more 'lean' than i have already. So my best option is to upgrade the service. But before i give a recommendation i need to know if the service upgrade will handle the visual.

Hi @airwolf39 ,


Please try to measure the size of the columns by using DMV queries in Power BI.

Use DAX studio to examine the query produced by the visual.  Most likely a cartesian product  (look at the "Records"  column in the query plan) that you may be able to correct by rewriting the measures that are part of the query.
