Does extraction of data from a Oracle Database cause performance issue?

Hi Team,


I would like to know if extracting data from an Oracle database would performance issue or a traffic for a scheduled refresh from Oracle Database? 


Kind regards,

Hi @Anonymous,


I agree with @Greg_Deckler. It's hard to say whether it will cause performance issue when you connect to Oracle database. However, we can monitor it's performance. Once you publish the report to Power BI Service, configure the corresponding Oracle data source under on-premises data gateway, then you can refer to this blog to monitor and analyze performance: Monitor On-Premises Data Gateways.

Tough to say definitely. Will it put load in terms of reads on an Oracle database? Yes. Would it be a performance issue...maybe? Would be basically the same load if you created a query that grabbed the data from a particular view or table. Should always use views generally.
