Resource Limitations with Azure Data Factory

Paul Andrew has a public service announcement for us:

As far as I can tell Microsoft do an excellent job at managing data centre capacity so I completely understand the reason for having limitations on resources in place. There is no such thing as a limitless cloud platform.

Note; in a lot of cases (as you’ll see in the below table for Data Factory) the MAX limitations are only soft restrictions that can easily be lifted via a support ticket. Please check before raising alerts and project risks.

Click through for the limits, and “contact support” definitely is good advice if you’re expecting to push past those limits.

Queueing Event Notifications with Service Broker

Max Vernon ties event notifications to Service Broker:

My previous post shows how to configure an Event Notification to fire whenever a login event occurs. The post uses Service Broker to receive those Event Notifications into a queue, which is then processed by a stored procedure and saved into a standard SQL Server database. This post provides a quick+dirty VB.Net command line monitor that shows how full a Service Broker queue is.

The following code should be pasted into a blank Visual Studio VB.Net console project. It is trivially easy to translate this into C#, but I like VB – what can I say.

Click through for the code. No F# translation from me, however, as I am lazy.
