In August 2018, we released Power BI Premium Capacity Metrics service app for Power BI Premium, giving capacity admins visibility into the use and health of their Premium nodes. We have since released a few versions of the app with additions as query metrics: max/average duration, max/average wait times, top datasets by duration/wait times, and query histograms.

We will add other capabilities in the next versions of the app, including:

  • Additional metrics to effectively manage the following Power BI datasets to improve report usability:
    • Total active datasets in memory
    • Active memory
    • Dataset load time
    • Dataset load wait time
    • Datasets failure to load
  • Metrics to manage additional Premium workloads, including dataflows, paginated reports, and AI.
  • Support for national clouds.
