Monitoring PowerBI Premium Capacity



I want to monitor PowerBI Premium Capacity Metrics, with monitor I mean schedule alerts if some metrics exceeds a threshold.


With PowerBI Premium Capacity Metrics I see some interesting metrics to monitor, for example CPU use.

My plan was to:

  • Connect to the dataset PowerBI Premium Capacity Metrics on another PBI report to see the last CPU use metric.
  • Publish this report and Pin this metric into a dashboard
  • Schedule one alert if the metric exceed the threshold


The biggest problem that I found doing this is that the "PowerBI Premium Capacity Metrics" can only be refreshed 8 times on a day, this means one refresh every 3 hours. This means that I will receive the alert 3 hours after the event.


Do you know any other possible method to implement this?

Hi @ruanolin ,


You could configure schedule refresh in the dataset. If you have premium license, you can get 48 times per day (interval is half an hour ).

Hi @v-eachen-msft ,


I'm not able to refresh more than 8 times because the datasource is not allocated in a Premium Workspaces and I haven't found a way to move the datasource.
