Power BI Command Memory Limit

Chris Webb is overdrawn at the memory bank:

Continuing my series on Power BI model memory errors (see part 1 and part 2), in this post I will look at the Command Memory Limit which restricts the amount of memory that XMLA commands like Create, Alter and most importantly Refresh and can use.

If you’ve ever been told that your semantic model should consume less than half the amount of memory available to it because memory consumption can double during a full refresh, then that is because of the Command Memory Limit. 

Read on to learn more about the Command Memory Limit and why this advice exists.
