How to Monitor and Manage Microsoft Fabric

Monitor and Manage Microsoft Fabric :Microsoft Fabric is a new analytics platform that integrates various services and tools from Power BI, Azure Synapse, and Azure Data Factory into a single unified experience. It enables you to perform data engineering, data science, data warehousing, real-time analytics, and business intelligence tasks with ease and efficiency.

However, to ensure the optimal performance and security of your Microsoft Fabric environment, you need to monitor and manage it effectively. In this blog post, we will show you how to use the Microsoft Fabric admin portal and other related tools to perform various monitoring and management tasks.

What is the Microsoft Fabric admin portal?

The Microsoft Fabric admin portal is the main tool for administering Microsoft Fabric for your organization. You can access it from the Power BI service or from the Azure portal. To use the Microsoft Fabric admin portal, you need to have either the global administrator, the Power Platform administrator, or the Fabric administrator role assigned to you.

The Microsoft Fabric admin portal allows you to perform the following tasks:

  • Enable and disable Microsoft Fabric features
  • Report on usage and performance
  • Review and manage auditing
  • Acquire and work with capacities
  • Ensure quality of service
  • Manage workspaces
  • Publish visuals
  • Verify codes used to embed Microsoft Fabric in other applications
  • Troubleshoot data access and other issues

How to monitor Microsoft Fabric?

Monitoring Microsoft Fabric involves collecting and analyzing data about the health, performance, and usage of your Microsoft Fabric environment. You can use various tools and reports to monitor different aspects of Microsoft Fabric, such as:

  • Capacity metrics: You can view the capacity metrics in the Microsoft Fabric admin portal to monitor the memory consumption, CPU utilization, and concurrency of your capacities. You can also configure alerts to notify you when certain thresholds are reached or exceeded.
  • Usage metrics: You can view the usage metrics in the Microsoft Fabric admin portal to monitor the activity and behavior of your users, workspaces, visuals, datasets, and dataflows. You can also export the usage data to Power BI for further analysis and visualization.
  • Auditing: You can enable auditing in the Microsoft 365 Security & Compliance portal to track and record user actions and events in your Microsoft Fabric environment. You can also use Microsoft Purview to classify and track your data assets across Microsoft Fabric.
  • Logging: You can enable logging in Azure Monitor to collect diagnostic logs from various components of Microsoft Fabric, such as Azure Synapse Analytics, Azure Data Factory, Azure Data Lake Storage, etc. You can also use Log Analytics to query and analyze the log data.
  • Alerts: You can create alerts in Azure Monitor to notify you when certain conditions or anomalies are detected in your Microsoft Fabric environment. You can also use Azure Sentinel to detect and respond to security threats.

How to manage Microsoft Fabric?

Managing Microsoft Fabric involves configuring and controlling various settings and resources that affect how Microsoft Fabric works for your organization. You can use various tools and commands to manage different aspects of Microsoft Fabric, such as:

Capacities: You can create and manage capacities in the Azure portal or by using PowerShell. Capacities are dedicated resources that run your workloads in Microsoft Fabric. You can assign workspaces to capacities, manage user permissions to capacities, and manage workloads to configure memory usage.

Workspaces: You can create and manage workspaces in the Power BI service or by using PowerShell. Workspaces are containers that store your analytics artifacts, such as datasets, dataflows, reports, dashboards, etc. You can assign users or groups to workspaces, manage access levels to workspaces, and publish visuals from workspaces.

Visuals: You can create and manage visuals in Power BI Desktop or by using PowerShell. Visuals are interactive charts or graphs that display your data insights. You can publish visuals from Power BI Desktop to workspaces, embed visuals in other applications by using codes, and update visuals by using APIs.

Data sources: You can create and manage data sources in Power BI Desktop or by using PowerShell. Data sources are connections to various types of data sources that provide data for your analytics. You can refresh data sources manually or automatically by using schedules or triggers.

Data protection: You can enable and manage data protection in the Power BI service or by using PowerShell. Data protection allows you to apply sensitivity labels and encryption policies to your data assets in Microsoft Fabric. You can also use data loss prevention policies in the Microsoft 365 Security & Compliance portal to prevent unauthorized sharing of sensitive data.
