Power BI desktop : Query Log

Hello,

 

In PowerBI DeskTop, when querying in a cube SSAS in mode import, is there any possibilities to see what are the queries send to SSAS ?

 

We are facing some performance problems in using PowerBI DeskTop and we try to see what are the queries sending to SSAS.

When using the SSAS trace events we are polluted by other queries that are not send from PowerBI DeskTop and it is hard to analyse the logs.

 

Thank you for your help,

There's no query log on Power BI side. You may try to generate Trace for long queries via Power Query. See:

However, you can use SQL Profiler to monitor the Query sent to SSAS server. You just need to filter the ApplicationName like "Power BI" in column filter to show events related to Power BI only.
