Performance Counters for the ReportServer:Service and ReportServerSharePoint:Service Performance Objects

 

Applies To: SQL Server 2016

This topic describes performance counters for the ReportServer:Service and ReportServerSharePoint:Service performance objects that are part of a SQL Server 2012 deployment.

System_CAPS_ICON_note.jpg Note


The performance objects are used to 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.

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/library/w4bz2147.aspx).

Applies to: SQL Server 2012.

The ReportServer:Service performance object includes a collection of counters to track HTTP-related events and memory-related events for a report server instance. This performance object appears one time for each Reporting Services instance on the computer, and you can add or remove counters from the performance object for each instance. Counters for the default instance appear in the format ReportServer:Service. Counters for named instances appear in the format ReportServer$<instance_name>:Service.

The ReportServer:Service performance object was new in SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services, and it provides a subset of counters that were included with Internet Information Services (IIS) and ASP.NET in previous versions of Reporting Services. These new counters are specific to Reporting Services, and they track HTTP-related events for the report server, such as requests, connections, and logon attempts. Additionally, this performance object includes counters to track memory management events.

The following table lists the counters that are included in the ReportServer:Service performance object.

PowerShell related content The following Windows PowerShell script will return the list of performance counters for the CounterSetName

(get-counter -listset "ReportServer:Service").paths  

CounterDescription
Active connectionsThe number of connections currently active on the server.
Bytes Received TotalThe number of bytes received by the server. This counter counts the raw bytes received in total by both Report Manager and the report server.
Bytes Received/secThe number of bytes received per second by the server. This counter is updated only when a transfer is completed. This means that the counter remains at 0 and then the value increases after a transfer is complete.
Bytes Sent TotalThe number of bytes sent from the server. This counter counts the raw bytes sent in total by both Report Manager and the report server.
Bytes Sent/secThe number of bytes sent per second from the server. This counter is updated only when a transfer is completed. This means that the counter remains at 0 and then the value increases after a transfer is complete.
Errors TotalThe total number of errors that occur during the processing of HTTP requests. These errors include HTTP status codes in the 400s and 500s.
Errors/secThe total number of errors that occur per second during the processing of HTTP requests. These errors include HTTP status codes in the 400s and 500s.
Logon Attempts TotalThe number of logon attempts made from RSWindows authentication types. RSWindows authentication types include RSWindowsNegotiate, RSWindowsNTLM, RSWindowsKerberos, and RSWindowsB asic. The value zero (0) represents Custom authentication.
Logon Attempts/secThe rate of logon attempts.
Logon Successes TotalThe number of successful logons for RSWindows authentication types. RSWindows authentication types include RSWindowsNegotiate, RSWindowsNTLM, RSWindowsKerberos, and RSWindowsB asic. The value zero (0) represents Custom authentication.
Logon Successes/secThe rate of successful logons.
Memory Pressure StateOne of the following numbers, from 1-5, which indicates the current memory state of the server:

1: No pressure

2: Low pressure

3: Medium pressure

4: High pressure

5: Exceeded pressure
Memory Shrink AmountThe number of bytes that the server requested to shrink the memory in use.
Memory Shrink Notifications/secThe number of notifications that the server issued in the last second to shrink the memory in use. This value indicates how often the server experiences memory pressure.
Requests DisconnectedThe number of requests that are disconnected because of a communication failure.
Requests ExecutingThe number of requests that are currently processing.
Requests Not AuthorizedThe number of requests that fail with an HTTP 401 status code.
Requests RejectedThe total number of requests that were not processed because of insufficient server resources. This counter represents the number of requests that return a HTTP 503 status code, which indicates that the server is too busy.
Requests TotalThe total number of requests that are received by the report server service since startup. This counter counts requests that are sent to Report Manager and requests that are sent from Report Manager to the report server.
Requests/secThe number of requests that are processed per second. This value represents the current throughput of the application.
Tasks QueuedThe number of tasks that are waiting for a thread to become available for processing. Each request made to the report server corresponds to one or more tasks. This counter represents only the number of tasks that are ready for processing; it does not include the number of tasks that are currently running.

The ReportServerSharePoint:Service performance object was added in SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services.
