Performance Counters for the MSRS 2014 Web Service SharePoint Mode and MSRS 2014 Windows Service SharePoint Mode Performance Objects (SharePoint Mode)

This topic describes performance counters for the MSRS 2014 Web Service SharePoint Mode and MSRS 2014 Windows Service SharePoint Mode performance objects that are part of a SQL Server 2014 Reporting Services (SSRS) SharePoint mode deployment.

NoteNote

This performance objects monitor events on the local report server. If you are running a report server in a scale-out deployment, the counts apply to the current server and not the scale-out deployment as a whole.

Applies to:

The performance objects are available in the Windows Performance Monitor (Perfmon.exe). For more information, see the Windows documentation. Runtime Profiling (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/w4bz2147.aspx).

MSRS 2014 Web Service SharePoint Mode Performance Counters

The MSRS 2014 Web Service SharePoint Mode performance object monitors report server performance. This performance object includes a collection of counters used to track report server processing typically initiated through interactive report viewing operations. When you set up this counter, you can apply the counter to all instances of Reporting Services or you can select specific instances. These counters are reset whenever ASP.NET stops the Report Server Web service.

The following table lists the counters that are included with the MSRS 2014 Web Service SharePoint Mode performance object.

Counter

Description

Active Sessions

Number of active sessions. This counter provides a cumulative count of all browser sessions generated from report executions, whether they are still active or not.

The counter is decremented as session records are removed. By default, sessions are removed after ten minutes of no activity.

Cache Hits/Sec

Number of requests per second for cached reports. These are requests for re-rendered reports, not requests for reports processed directly from the cache. (See Total Cache Hits later in this topic.)

Cache Hits/Sec (Semantic Models)

Number of requests per second for cached model. These are requests for re-rendered reports, not requests for reports processed directly from the cache.

Cache Misses/Sec

Number of requests per second that failed to return a report from cache. Use this counter to find out whether the resources used for caching (disk or memory) are sufficient.

Cache Misses/Sec (Semantic Models)

Number of requests per second that failed to return a model from cache. Use this counter to find out whether the resources used for caching (disk or memory) are sufficient.

First Session Requests/Sec

Number of new user sessions that are started from the report server cache each second.

Memory Cache Hits/Sec

Number of times per second that reports are retrieved from the in-memory cache. In-memory cache is a part of the cache that stores reports in CPU memory. When in-memory cache is used, the report server does not query SQL Server for cached content.

Memory Cache Misses/Sec

Number of times per second that reports could not be retrieved from the in-memory cache.

Next Session Requests/Sec

Number of requests per second for reports that are open in an existing session (such as reports that are rendered from a session snapshot).

Report Requests

Number of reports that are currently active and being handled by the report server.

Reports Executed/Sec

Number of successful report executions per second. This counter provides statistics about report volume. Use this counter with Request/Sec to compare report execution to report requests that can be returned from cache.

Requests/Sec

Number of requests per second made to the report server. This counter tracks all types of requests that are handled by the report server.

Total Cache Hits

Total number of requests for reports from the cache after the service started. This counter is reset whenever ASP.NET stops the Report Server Web service.

Total Cache Hits (Semantic Models)

Total number of requests for model from the cache after the service started. This counter is reset whenever ASP.NET stops the Report Server Web service.

Total Cache Misses

Total number of times that a report could not be returned from the cache after the service started. This counter is reset whenever ASP.NET stops the Report Server Web service. Use this counter to determine whether disk space and memory are sufficient.

Total Cache Misses (Semantic Models)

Total number of times that a model could not be returned from the cache after the service started. This counter is reset whenever ASP.NET stops the Report Server Web service. Use this counter to determine whether disk space and memory are sufficient.

Total Memory Cache Hits

Total number of cached reports returned from the in-memory cache after the service started. This counter is reset whenever ASP.NET stops the Report Server Web service. In-memory cache is a part of the cache that stores reports in CPU memory. When in-memory cache is used, the report server does not query SQL Server for cached content.

Total Memory Cache Misses

Total number of cache misses against the in-memory cache after the service started. This counter is reset whenever ASP.NET stops the Report Server Web service.

Total Processing Failures

Number of errors in report server web service request processing.

Total Rejected Threads

Total number of threads rejected for asynchronous processing, and subsequently handled as synchronous processes in the same thread. Each data source is processed on one thread. If the volume of threads exceeds capacity, threads are rejected for asynchronous processing, and are then processed in a serial manner.

Total Reports Executed

Total number of reports that ran successfully after the service started. This counter is reset whenever ASP.NET stops the Report Server Web service.

Total Requests

Total number of all requests made to the report server after the service started. This counter is reset whenever ASP.NET stops the Report Server Web service.

MSRS 2014 Windows Service SharePoint Mode Performance Counters

The MSRS 2014 Windows Service SharePoint Mode performance object is used to monitor the Report Server Windows service. This performance object includes a collection of counters used to track report processing that is initiated through scheduled operations. Scheduled operations can include subscription and delivery, report execution snapshots, and report history. When you set up this counter, you can apply the counter to all instances of Reporting Services or you can select specific instances.

The following table lists the counters that are included in the MSRS 2014 Windows Service SharePoint mode performance object.

Counter

Description

Active Sessions

Number of active sessions stored in the report server database. This counter provides a cumulative count of all usable browser sessions generated from report subscriptions, whether they are still active or not.

Alerting: event queue length

Alerting: events processed - CreateSchedule

Alerting: events processed – Delete schedule

Alerting: events processed – DeliverAlert

Alerting: events processed – FireAlert

Alerting: events processed – FireSchedule

Alerting: events processed – GenerateAlert

Alerting: events processed – UpdateSchedule

Cache Flushes/Sec

Number of cache flushes per second.

Cache Hits/Sec

Number of requests per second for cached reports. These are requests for re-rendered reports, not requests for reports processed directly from the cache. (See Total Cache Hits later in this topic.)

Cache Hits/Sec (Semantic Models)

Number of requests per second for cached models.

Cache Misses/Sec

Number of requests per second that failed to return a report from cache. Use this counter to find out whether the resources used for caching (disk or memory) are sufficient.

Cache Misses/Sec (Semantic Models)

Number of requests per second that failed to return a model from cache. Use this counter to find out whether the resources used for caching (disk or memory) are sufficient.
