Monitoring other processes Interact with the Operating System and other system components thru WMI Tasks Use WMI Data Reader to – Identify the amount of free/used space on a hard drive on a local or a remote computer system. – Generate a list of all the applications and the application versions installed on a local or remote computer. – Generate a list of all windows services running on a local or remote computer. Use WMI Event Watcher to – Keep polling a directory for the availability of files which are being written. – Wait for the CPU utilization to come down below a certain threshold to trigger events. – Wait for the server memory to reach a threshold before executing a SSIS package or any process which consumes a lot of server memory. – Wait until a defined windows service to start before proceeding with a specific action.
Passing data to/from external applications Use DataReader Source / Destination. Use SSIS to harness its ETL strengths in conjunction with other applications. Extract or Import binary data using Import / Export column transformations.
PART II – INTERACTING WITH PACKAGES FROM EXTERNAL APPLICATIONS
Executing Packages On local machine – Be aware of licensing violations – Ensure all dependencies are also available on local machine On a remote machine – Use SQL Agent – Use Web services Schedule package execution – Create SQL Agent jobs – Create proxy accounts From SSRS Reports – Enable the SSIS Data Extension in RSReportServer.config and RSReportDesigner.config
