I have an ETL on our production server that is running slowly. I want to know if there is a way to get the type of results that you can get when you run a package with the Dtexec utility. Due to restrictions on the production server I am only allowed to run the ETL as a scheduled job, otherwise I would just use that utility to get detailed results for each step.

So, is there a way to log that dtexec utility level of detail when my ETL runs as a scheduled job? Thanks.

If you're asking about logging in dtexec then use /L switch

No - I'm not allowed to use dtexec on my production server. I have a scheduled job that runs the ETL. I want to see if I can get a good description of how long each package is taking to run during the ETL so I can see where my problem is.

I know when you use dtexec you get a really detailed list of each task and how long each task took to complete. Can I get that without using DTexec?

You can if you've enabled logging inside the SSIS package. You can also implement custom logging using event handlers

Thanks visakh, I will investigate logging. I've never used it before but it looks pretty straightforward.
