Report Server Monitoring

I am working on a report to monitor certain things on the Power BI report Server.  I was wondering what items others may be monitoring on reports.  I am willing to share what I have done so far.  


Listed below are the items I am currently monitoring:


A.  Whether the scheduled data refreshes failed or succeeded. 

          a.  Would love to be able to get the failure message.

B.  What is the average response time of a query.

          a.  Is there a way to determine when the report is first opened.  I would like to calculate initial load time.

C.  What was the longest response time of a query per day.

D.  How many times a query took longer than 5 seconds.

Re: Report Server Monitoring


You can also monitor the following items.

  1. Who is viewing reports?
  2. Which reports are the most popular?
  3. When are reports being executed?
  4. What is performance like (any slow reports?)?
  5. What % of the workload is Power BI reports versus other report types?
