SSAS – Find Cube Database Name, Size,Status and Total Size of SSAS Server

We are planning to take SSAS cube database backup since our backup tool does full file system backup in case of recovery, restoration is taking more time and hence as a first step we are started gathering the number of cubes,status and total size of cube databases .

SQLAS provider used for navigating the Analysis Management Object (AMO) hierarchy. You must import the SQLPS module before you can use the SQLAS provider and cmdlets. The SQLAS provider is an extension of the SQLServer provider. There are several ways to import the SQLPS module.

Please refer by earlier post to load SMO’s, if it’s not loaded.


Create a file SSAS1.PS1 and paste the below content

$loadInfo = [Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName(“Microsoft.AnalysisServices”)
$server = New-Object Microsoft.AnalysisServices.Server
if ($server.name -eq $null) {
Write-Output (“Server ‘{0}’ not found” -f $ServerName)

foreach ($d in $server.Databases )
Write-Output ( “Database: {0}; Status: {1}; Size: {2}MB” -f $d.Name, $d.State, ($d.EstimatedSize/1024/1024).ToString(“#,##0″) )


write-host ‘Sum of Database = ‘$sum ‘ MB’
Write-host ‘Total Size of Cube Databases =’ $SizeGB ‘ GB’


Open PowerShell – Type PowerShell in command prompt

PS C:\> .\SSAS1.PS1 <serverName>

Or Command Prompt
Powershell.exe c:\ssas1.ps1 <ServerName>

PS E:\> .\ssas.ps1 TEST
