when doing copy activity, Performance tuning of source SQL VM

Sae In Choi 6 Reputation points Microsoft Employee

When doing copy activity with ADF, how can I handle the performance of source SQL VM?

I've already read some performance tuning guide when doing copy activity in ADF but all of those docs is for copy activity not for source SQL VM.

What I want to know is how to cover the performance of the original SQL VM when performing bulk copy operations in ADF.
