Hello! I am generating and modifying the report model programmatically and it comes out as big as 260MB - for over 500 entities with hundreds of attributes in each of them.
When the report model is being uploaded into Report Manager, the ReportingServicesService.exe spikes up to 4GB in memory usage.

Of course, sometimes such an amount of memory is not available and the upload fails with OutOfMemory exception

Also, I cannot open the report model in the BIDS - I get Insufficient Memory exception.

Why would a 260MB model require 4GB of memory?

How can I reduce the size of my model and keep all my entities?

Thanks a lot!!

I would recommend splitting it up. We have many models and use different models for different reports.

This way we'll lose the possibility to combine data between all of these entities, because we cannot create reports between entities in separate Report Models.

Also that would require end-users to decide how to split entities between models, whereas now they do not care - they just have all of their tables available to them in the Report Model

But I think we have no choice but to live with this limitation...

Thanks
