Package Execution Panel


The Monitoring Console's execution diagram panel is the main view used to monitor the execution for a package. The execution diagram panel is divided up into three sections: Header, toolbar, and diagram.



1.   Header: Displays a summary for the currently selected execution



1.    Execution Name: Displays the name of the execution. Clicking the "X" will close the execution. This frees up space for viewing other selected executions

2.    User and Machine Information: Displays the user account and machine that ran the package

3.    Date and Runtime: Details the start time and how long the execution ran before completing

4.    Status: The background color of the header describes the current status for the package

1.    Red: Package completed with at least one error

2.    Green: Package completed without errors

3.    Yellow: Package is still running

4.    Blue: Package was manually stopped before execution completed

2.   Toolbar: Controls what is currently displayed within the diagram



1.    Control Flow: Switches the diagram view to display the current execution's control flow execution. The diagram displays the control flow execution by default.

2.    Data Flow: Switches the diagram to display the current execution's data flow executions. The data flow button is only enabled if the execution contains at least one data flow execution. The diagram displays the first data flow execution by default. Use the data flow selector to select a different data flow execution.

3.    Data Flow Selector: Allows users to choose which data flow execution they wish displayed within the diagram. The selector is only enabled if the user is currently viewing the data flow executions.

4.   Auto Layout Button: Toggles between using the layout present within the package. If enabled, BI xPress detects out of date or missing layouts and attempts to generate a more accurate diagram. If disabled, BI xPress displays the provided package layout, regardless of whether it is out of date or missing.

5.   Auto Generated Diagram Label: This label notifies the user that the layout information is out of date or missing. This label is only displayed if the user has enabled auto layouts.


3.    Diagram: Displays the execution details for the control or data flow in a way familiar with SSIS developers. By default, the execution diagram will display the control flow.


1.Navigation Buttons: Located in the upper right of the diagram. These buttons assist the user with navigating the diagram panel.
