Tune Report Performance


Tune Report Performance

When you have finished creating your report, the performance of that report depends on how quickly data can load onto the report page. You should test your report in the Power BI service to see how it works from a user’s perspective. If you experience issues, or if the report users have reported issues, you need to investigate the cause of those issues and take measures to tune the report for more optimised performance.

Analyse Performance

Performance analyser allows you to discover how each of your report elements, such as visuals and DAX formulas, are performing. Performance analyser provides you with logs that measure (in time duration) how each of your report elements performs when users interact with them.

Interact with your report as you would expect a user to, and then stop the recording. The results of your interactions will display in the Performance analyser pane as you work. When you are finished, select the Stop button.

Tune the Performance

The results of your analysis will identify areas for improvement and highlight items that you need to optimise. A common reason for poor performance is too many visuals on the same page. The following image shows an example of a busy page that contains several visuals.
