True, mixing BI-tools and OLTP db's can lead to severe performance problems. Ad hoc reports can't be tuned. But I need to quantify the performance and identify the top trouble-reports , and try to tune those reports before i can come to the conclusion that we need more iron.

Report-name, runtime, frequency, timeperiod : that's the info i need in order to know the tune-targets. How to get that?
