Scheduled refresh limit for MULTIPLE reports

I currently have scheduled a daily refresh of 16 reports for my organization. I could see potentially scheduling a refresh on up to 30-40 reports. My license type is Premium Per User.

 

Is there a limit to the number of reports you can schedule to be refreshed? I understand the limit for a single report is 8/day but I mean for separate reports. 

 

Also, our on-premise Data Gateway is on an AWS EC2 instance. Although I have not run into an issue thus far, could the Data Gateway struggle to refresh all of these reports at the same time? I would schedule them all for 2 AM.

 

Apologies in advance if this has been posted before but prior posts I found dealt with the limit for a single report, not multiple reports.

 

Thank you

Hi @Inception951 ,

For a resource-consuming behavior like refreshing, it has a complex algorithm behind it to calculate. But when the consumption at a certain point exceeds the threshold assigned by the license, the policy delays or denies the request for the next step.

For resource-consuming behaviors like scheduled refreshes, we recommend that you spread your time over a larger window to reduce the probability of triggering a throttling strategy. Of course this will also reduce the pressure on the gateway and data sources.
You can refer to best practices here:
