Frequent issues with Dataset refreshes across different workspaces in power bi



There has been frequent refresh failures with following error message:

Data source error:

{"error":{"code":"DM_GWPipeline_Gateway_TimeoutError","pbi.error":{"code":"DM_GWPipeline_Gateway_TimeoutError","parameters":{},"details":[],"exceptionCulprit":1}}} Table: XXXX.

This happens randomly across different workspaces and for different tables. (DB source type: SQL Server)


What are the settings that can be checked?

What are the best practices that can be followed?


Any suggestions will be really helpful.

I know this is an old post. Just wanted to provide certain inputs that may be useful.

- Restart the capacity (Premium capacity)

- Disable any AI related options if that is not being used
- Setup the Capacity workload based on requirement

- Schedule large datasets at certain times to minimize conflicts with other refreshes.

- Use dataflows to avoid reprocessing the same data in multiple datasets.
- Use Power BI datasets direct query datasets to reuse datasets in reports.
- Also Power BI models needs to be optimized for performance and dataset size.

Please share/add if you have more thoughts on this.
- We also got a dedicated server for Power BI gateway.

i'm also getting the same error when using incremental refresh with an ODBC connector for google big query. Any updates would be great.

I have the same issue when I pull from multi source via web. Any idea that what's going on and whether you've resolved your case?
