Auto Scaling - ADLA


  • Hi,

    I am using ADF v2 with Azure Data Lake Analytics.I am running USQL code from ADF v2. Is there anyway to scale ADLA compute automatically based on the data volume it is processing? Please advise.

  • Hi Soumitra,

        ADLA dynamically scales and allocates resources according to its size to process the data. Please take a look at this documentation.

  • You bet there is.  When you schedule the job, you can choose to assign more or less AUs to the job.   In the ADF code it's called degree of parallelism.

  • Hi Guy,

    Is there anyway I can change degree of parallelism automatically based on data volume in ADF V2?

  • Hi Soumitra

    Currently there is no auto scaling. If you can predict approximate data volumes, you should write different pipelines. E.g., one ADF pipeline that handles the high-volume days and one that handles the low-volume days.
