Physical Memory

The amount of physical memory on the SQL Server instance host machine.

Process ID

The process ID of the SQL Server instance host machine.

Processor Count

The number of processors on the SQL Server instance’s host machine.

Processor Type

The processor type on the SQL Server instance’s host machine.

Product Version

Working Set

Working Set is the current size, in bytes, of the Working Set of this process.

The Working Set is the set of memory pages touched recently by the threads in the process.

If free memory in the computer is above a threshold, pages are left in the Working Set of a process even if they are not in use.

When free memory falls below a threshold, pages are trimmed from Working Sets.

If they are needed they will then be soft-faulted back into the Working Set before leaving main memory.

% Processor

% CPU of SSIS Out of the entire CPU usage.

Memory Utilization

The percentage of memory being used by the host of SSIS.

SSIS Summary

Gather availability information about the service.

Working Set

Working Set is the current size, in bytes, of the Working Set of this process.

The Working Set is the set of memory pages touched recently by the threads in the process.

If free memory in the computer is above a threshold, pages are left in the Working Set of a process even if they are not in use.

When free memory falls below a threshold, pages are trimmed from Working Sets.

If they are needed, they will then be soft-faulted back into the Working Set before leaving main memory.

IOPs

Number of IO operations per minute.

% Processor

% CPU of SSIS Out of the entire CPU usage.

Bytes Read

The number of bytes read from all data sources in total.

Bytes Written

The number of bytes written to all data destinations in total.

Rows Read

The number of rows that a source produces in total. The number does not include rows read from reference tables by the Lookup transformation.

Rows Written

The number of rows offered to a destination in total. The number does not reflect rows written to the destination datastore.

Buffers Memory

The average amount of physical and virtual memory used by the data flow task.

Buffers Spooled

The total number of buffers written to disk during data flow tasks in the selected timeframe. Buffer is written to disk when the data flow engine runs low on physical memory.

Buffers In Use

The average number of buffer objects used by all data flow components and data flow engine during the selected timeframe.

Total Executions Count

The total number of packages execution in the examined era.

Failed Executions Count

The total number of failed packages.

Currently Running

The number of currently running packages.

Succeeded Execution Count

The number of successes packages run.

Others

Other packages running results.

Distinct Executed Packages

The number of distinct packages runs.

Current Number of Packages

The current number of packages.

Days Since Last Backup

Days since last backup.

Encryption Algorithm

The type of encryption algorithm that is used to encrypt sensitive data. The supported values include: DES, TRIPLE_DES, TRIPLE_DES_3KEY, DESX, AES_128, AES_192, and AES_256.

Max Project Versions

The number of new project versions that are retained for a single project. When version cleanup is enabled, older versions beyond this count are deleted.

Operation Cleanup Enabled

When the value is TRUE, operation details and operation messages older than RETENTION_WINDOW (days) are deleted from the catalog. When the value is FALSE, all operation details and operation messages are stored in the catalog.

Retention Window

The number of days that operation details and operation messages are stored in the catalog. When the value is -1, the retention window is infinite.

Schema Build

The build number of the SSISDB catalog database schema. This number changes whenever the SSISDB catalog is created or upgraded.

Schema Version

The major version number of the SSISDB catalog database schema. This number changes whenever the SSISDB catalog is created or the major version is upgraded.

Server Logging Level

The default logging level for the Integration Services server.

Version Cleanup Enabled

When the value is TRUE, only the MAX_PROJECT_VERSIONS number of project versions are stored in the catalog and all other project versions are deleted. When the value is FALSE, all project versions are stored in the catalog.

Operation Log Number of Records

The number of total operations in the Integration Services catalog.

Operation Log Size

Total operation log size.

Version Log Number of Records

Total number of records in the log versions of objects in the Integration Services catalog.

Version Log Size

Batch Executions

SQL Batches being submitted to SQL Server for execution.

Batch Executions Rate

The rate per second at which SQL batches are being submitted to SQL Server for execution.

Compiles

Compiling is the process by which SQL Server converts the SQL statement into an executable query plan.

Compiles Rate

The rate per second at which SQL Statements are compiled, that is: converted into an executable query plan.

ReCompiles

A recompile occurs when SQL Server determines that the execution plan for a stored procedure that is currently executing may no longer be the best possible plan.

Redundant Compilations

Ratio

Percentage of SQL recompilations that take place.

A high percentage of SQL recompilations may indicate the need for additional physical memory.

This ratio is calculated as follows:

100 * (Compiles / Compiles + Recompiles)
