SSAS service is configured using standard settings with a low memory limit 65. Accordingly to MS it means 65% of the available RAM and hardware host has 256 GB RAM, but SSAS always stops at ~65GB and writes the information into eventlog: "Entering Low Memory mode (Current memory consumption: 65558.4880 MB)." It's Standard SQL 2017 Build installed as a failover clustered instance.

Any ideas why it happens and how I can fix it? Thank you!

  • Are you using ssas multidimentional or tabular?
