Diagnosing Power BI DirectQuery Connection Limit Performance Problems With Execution Metrics

In this blog post, you'll learn how to use execution metrics to diagnose problems related to connection limits in Power BI DirectQuery. The Maximum Connections Per Data Source property in Premium allows for a limited number of connections to a DirectQuery semantic model.
