Dear Dremio Community,
Issue: Currently long loading times in PowerBI report:
Target: I would like to know, where is the better place to execute calculations/measurements on?
In Dremio via Queries, or in PowerBI via Measurements?
Status Quo: We have parquet-files with machine data stored on the Azure Blob Container.
The parquet files are stored in a structured folder structure (YYYY/MM/DD → then the file).
Via Dremio query we agglomerate them to a master table.
Currently we still have roughly 20 measurements in PowerBI, to “transform” the data to our needs.
PowerBI is connected via Live mode to Dremio. The data is pulled / pre-selected by time-range selection in PowerBI report, based on YYYY/MM/DD.
Measurements look for example like, dividing column 5 by column 6, based on a filter “if column 7 = xyz”. Something like that is the complexity of our measurements.
What can we do to enhance speed? Switch measurements from PowerBI to Dremio? Or something else?
Thanks for your feedback!
