Identify Storage Engine and Formula Engine bottlenecks with new SSAS XEvents

Undoubtedly, the big news of Analysis Services 2012 is the introduction of the new Tabular model and its language DAX.

However, there are some interesting news also in the multidimensional model - I just mentioned one of these, the SSAS Storage String limit, in my previous post, but I will write a specific post about it -, including the introduction of Extended Events (XEvents).

Three months ago, Chris Webb wrote this interesting post where you can find all the information to start to play with Extended Events.

Today, I will show how to use Extended Events as an alternative to use Profiler to monitor the activities of our MDX queries.
