  • Hi sir,

    Thanks for your posting!

    Events are partitioned based on a system property called PartitionKey, and sent to the Event Hub using an EventhubClient object.

    You could use the Partitions like this :

    Create EventHub : 
    var ehd = new EventHubDescription(eventHubName); 
    ehd.PartitionCount = numberOfPartitions; 
    Sent Events: 
    EventData data = new EventData(bytes) 
    data.PartitionKey = info.DeviceId.ToString(); 
    await client.SendAsync(data); 

    Please refer to this code sample:
