Monitor an Analysis Services Instance

You can monitor the performance of Analysis Services by using SQL Server Profiler or Performance Monitor, an application sometimes referred to as PerfMon. SQL Server Profiler lets you create and manage traces and analyze and replay trace results. Performance Monitor reports on server status, as indexed through certain counters, which are discussed in the next section.


For more information about monitoring, see the SQL Server 2008 R2 Operations Guide.
