Need help on PowerBI visualization and DAX/ query - show utilization by day per job


New Member
hi guys,

I am new to Power BI and I need to come out with a VM/ server utilization dashboard. The problem statement.:- Job table contains the start, end time of a job and the VM/ host name which runs the job. The log table contains the individual transactions of a job. Both tables are connected via common field Key & jobkey. A VM may host more than 1 job and a job might run till the next day.
How do I show in a visualization, the VM utilization per job per day?
For eg, I would like to show job MNO's utilization that runs 2 days on the same VM as job GHI. Utilization should be shown in 2 graphs:
  • jobs utilization percentage on the VM, per day
  • and another graph illustrating jobs utilization (in minutes) on the VM, per day.
The challenge would be showing the utilization per day for jobs that span multiple days.
I have included the Power BI file and the supporting source excel. Would really appreciate any assistance.
excel (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1K7k1lim4UUbGTPCYaepSqJTxcKeTiqeV/view?usp=sharing)
pbix - graph for 17/08 is incorrect, as it should be 1198 minutes, not 1440 min. (https://drive.google.com/file/d/18eRW7HmViAjFj-5Ur1AUb_qNoInEqfez/view?usp=sharing)
