In one of our projects, we were executing SSIS Packages (KingswaySoft’s Dynamics 365 SSIS Integration Toolkit) under Azure-SSIS Integration Runtime in Azure Data Factory.

Deploy and run SSIS Package in Azure Data Factory
Deploy and run SSIS Packages that use KingswaySoft’s SSIS Integration Toolkit on Azure Data Factory.
After trying out different combinations, we eventually settled with batch size as 10 and thread as 15.
Also, we used multiplexing – running the CRM Destination Component under different application users.
To be precise, 4 in our case and we can increase it get further improvement in the throughput.
And also based on the recommendation of our Microsoft’s Fast Track Architect we raised a Microsoft ticket to increase the number of web servers allocated from 2 to 3.
Below were our findings,
the earlier run was using batch size as 100 and thread as 20 with the number of servers as 2.
On updating the batch size to 10 and thread as 15 and with the number of servers allocated increased to 3, there was a huge performance gain.
Check the table below –
The above table is sample run in the sandbox environment, during the final run in production we got the number of servers allocated, increased to 6, gaining further improvement.

Hope it helps..
