Power BI Semantic Model Memory Errors, Part 2: Max Offline Semantic Model Size

Power BI Semantic Model Memory Errors, Part 2: Max Offline Semantic Model Size

This blog post addresses a common error encountered by users of Power BI, namely "Database 'xyz' exceeds the maximum size limit on disk". In the Power BI Service, Import mode models are stored offline and paged into memory only when they are needed. As discussed in Part 1 of this series, there is a limit on the amount of memory that a model can use. Here in Part 2, that limit is explored in greater detail, specifically in terms of the maximum offline semantic model size.

Understanding this error and how to address it is crucial for anyone working with Power BI's semantic models. By delving into the specifics of maximum offline semantic model size, readers will gain insights into ways to optimize their models and keep memory limitations in check. So if you're struggling with this error or simply want to learn more about how to maximize the power of Power BI, this post is a must-read.
