Memory consumption indicator
There should be a way embedded into the Power BI Desktop or to the Power BI Service to figure out the actual uncompressed memory footprint.
This doesn't seem to be rocket science, and would save a lot of headache. It would allow analysts to discover how inefficient their data models are. It would ultimately help the Power BI infrastructure as well by helping people to avoid loading the Power BI servers with unnecessary workload.
I think it's strange to have our premium licenses limited by memory usage but not be able to see which workspaces are using up that memory. We get size but that is useless in identifying what needs to be addressed. I don't want to suspect that its intentional so that we have to upgrade to a higher premium package but that's the only thing i can come up with. Come on Microsoft do the right thing ;)

it would be nice to have some basic admin tools within Power BI Service. We are running blind with no way to see even simple information such as the number of Datasets in use and when the refresh much less their memory footprint across the tenant.

Having reached the 1B limit and looking for ways to reduce the model size, it would be great to see the size of the imported tables somewhere in the UI to identify where to target efforts
