Monitor capacities in the Admin portal

Is this page helpful?

The Health tab in the Capacity settings area in the Admin portal provides a metrics summary about your capacity and enabled workloads.

Capacity Health tab in the portal

If you need more comprehensive metrics, use the Power BI Premium Capacity Metrics app. The app provides drill-down and filtering, and the most detailed metrics for near every aspect affecting capacity performance. To learn more, see Monitor Premium capacities with the app.

System Metrics

On the Health tab, at the highest level, CPU utilization and memory usage provide a quick view of the most important metrics for the capacity. These metrics are cumulative, including all enabled workloads for the capacity.

Metric Description
CPU UTILIZATION Average CPU utilization, as a percentage of total available CPU.
MEMORY USAGE Average memory usage in gigabytes (GB).

Workload metrics

For each workload enabled for the capacity. CPU utilization and memory usage are shown.

Metric Description
CPU UTILIZATION Average CPU utilization, as a percentage of total available CPU.
MEMORY USAGE Average memory usage in gigabytes (GB).

Detailed workload metrics

Each workload has additional metrics. The type of metrics shown depend on the workload. To see detailed metrics for a workload, click the expand (down) arrow.

Dataflows

Dataflow Operations
Metric Description
Total Count Total refreshes for each dataflow.
Success Count Total successful refreshes for each dataflow.
Average Duration (min) The average duration of refresh for the dataflow, in minutes
Max Duration (min) The duration of the longest-running refresh for the dataflow, in minutes.
Average Wait Time (min) The average lag between the scheduled time and start of a refresh for the dataflow, in minutes.
Max Wait Time (min) The maximum wait time for the dataflow, in minutes.

Datasets

Refresh
Metric Description
Total Count Total refreshes for each dataset.
Success Count Total successful refreshes for each dataset.
Failure Count Total failed refreshes for each dataset.
Success Rate Number of successful refreshes divided by the total refreshes to measure. reliability.
Average Duration (min) The average duration of refresh for the dataset, in minutes.
Max Duration (min) The duration of the longest-running refresh for the dataset, in minutes.
Average Wait Time (min) The average lag between the scheduled time and start of a refresh for the dataset, in minutes.
Max Wait Time (min) The maximum wait time for the dataset, in minutes.
Query
Metric Description
Total Count The total number of queries run for the dataset.
Average Duration (ms) The average query duration for the dataset, in milliseconds
Max Duration (ms) The duration of the longest-running query in the dataset, in milliseconds.
Average Wait Time (ms) The average query wait time for the dataset, in milliseconds.
Max Wait Time (ms) The duration of the longest-waiting query in the dataset, in milliseconds.
Eviction
Metric Description
Model Count The total number of dataset evictions for this capacity. When a capacity faces memory pressure, the node evicts one or more datasets from memory. Datasets that are inactive (with no query/refresh operation currently executing) are evicted first. Then the eviction order is based on a measure of 'least recently used' (LRU).

Paginated Reports

Report Execution
Metric Description
Execution Count The number of times the report was been executed and viewed by users.
Report Usage
Metric Description
Success Count The number of times the report has been viewed by a user.
Failure Count The number of times the report has been viewed by a user.
Row Count The number of rows of data in the report.
Data Retrieval Duration (ms) The average amount of time it takes to retrieve data for the report, in milliseconds. Long durations can indicate slow queries or other data source issues.
Processing Duration (ms) The average amount of time it takes to process the data for a report, in milliseconds.
Rendering Duration (ms) The average amount of time it takes to render a report in the browser, in milliseconds.
