Azure Monitoring - Metrics

DT-1199 40 Reputation points


Over the weekend, I downgraded the elasticpool spec from 300 to 200 DTU under the same Standard Service Tier as the original was under utilized. I ran the Azure metrics to see if there were any changes to utilization and whilst I expected there would be some changes, I didn't think the change would be significant. For example, after the downgrade, why did the eDTU Used jumped to 100% even though there were no changes to the underline DB? A 10-20% jump would be reasonable. This was over the weekend when no one was using the DB. The same goes for other metrics as well.

Can someone with experience in this area explain what could have been the cause in this jump please? Thank you
