Power BI EM1- Critical memory thrashing



In my organization we have a implemented Power BI premium (EM1 plan). Most of our reports are embedded in SharePoint - non pro users are using reports without pro licence.


We have ~10-15 reports and problem with memory in our EM1 premium capacity.


In Power BI service (admin portal --> capacity settings) we have a information "Memory thrashing: critical" - Exceeded 80% utilization.


We want to now whitch of our reports are most expensive for memory and how to making reports to optimize this parameter.


Are there any possibilities in Power BI service to find "most memory consumed" reports ?

Hi @mcs007,


In fact, current power bi not contains any effective solutions to deal with huge data amount reports performance issue.

In my opinion, I'd like to suggest you optimizing data model to increase performance or upgrade to higher license.
